The Kickz team help out at the Donkey Sanctuary
Members of the Lions Club of Reading and a group from the Reading Kickz team recently helped out with refurbishment work at the Island Farm Donkey Santuary in Wallingford.
The Lions Club of Reading is also proud to be associated with the Reading Kickz Project. The Reading Kickz project is managed by the 'Royals' (Reading FC) with the aim of engaging young people living in disadvantaged communities who may otherwise be difficult to reach. Its vision is "to target some of the most disadvantaged areas of the country in order to create safer, stronger, more respectful communities through the development of young peoples' potential".
The scheme is designed to:
engage young people (aged 12-18yrs) in a range of constructive activities
create routes into education, training and employment
encourage volunteering within projects and throughout the target neighbourhoods
break down barriers between the police and young people
reduce crime and anti social behaviour in the targeted neighbourhoods
increase the playing, coaching and officiating opportunities for participants
