AFD SUPPORTING GOLDING VISION AND KENT SPORT INITIATIVE

American Football Development Limited, provider of flag football to schools and community groups announced today its support for Kent Sport’s programme with Golding Vision, the community arm of local housing provider Golding Homes.

The project is offering a range of sports and physical activity programmes over the summer months which is free to children and young people aged between  2 ½ and 18 years.

“We are delighted to be a part of this project and working with other sports providers to be able to offer sport to residents of Golding Homes,” said Gur Samuel, managing director of AFD Limited.

“We want to make the sport of American Football accessible to all, regardless of background or physical ability, and we hope that the Kent Sport and Golding Vision project will help engage a number of young people in the Maidstone area.

As well as flag football, other sports such as boxing, cricket and archery are also being made available for the young people of the area to try out and bring the community together.”

Kevin Day, Sport and Physical Activity Manager at Kent Sport said:

“With the new Sport England Strategy focussing on how sport can support physical and mental wellbeing, as well as bringing communities together, this programme is a fantastic way of meeting those outcomes. Kent Sport is grateful to AFD Limited and the other sports providers for working closely with us to provide these opportunities for young people who might not normally get the chance to try these activities.”

Caroline Mcbride, Head of Community Development at Golding Homes said:  “This is such an great opportunity for local children and young people to take part in American football and learn new skills, and we are grateful that the AFD are supporting the Kent Sport’s programme.”
