Power of sport is clear to see

Paisley Daily Express - - A Newlandscape - It was great to visit Street League and talk to the young­sters

I had the plea­sure of vis­it­ing Street League, in Pais­ley, to meet the staff and young­sters of the pro­gramme.

When I was a new MP, Street League was one of the first groups that I vis­ited and it was great to catch up with the staff about the work they’ve been do­ing since then.

It was also great to spend some time with the young­sters, who are very tal­ented. They not only spoke about what they en­joy about Street League, but also asked me a num­ber of chal­leng­ing ques­tions.

I al­ways talk about the power of sport bring­ing about change across our coun­try and within our com­mu­ni­ties. Street League is a prime ex­am­ple of this.

This is fan­tas­tic con­cept that helps young peo­ple ac­cess op­por­tu­ni­ties and reach pos­i­tive des­ti­na­tions in life and I’m glad this op­por­tu­nity is avail­able for young peo­ple in Ren­frew­shire.

I will con­tinue to cham­pion Street League as the ben­e­fits from this pro­gramme are clear to see.
