Power of sport is clear to see
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.
