On the day of each event, we shut down the heart of the town and put in place the ability to play street soccer. The local food bank we have partnered with will be on site to support us by collecting donations.
All you have to do is show up – bring your donation to the food bank and your soccer kit. Heck, wear your favourite soccer shirt! You register, and play soccer. It’s that easy. Play as little or as long as you want to!HOW LITTLE KICKERS IS INVOLVED?
Little Kickers has partnered to support Footy for Food in its inaugural tour as they travel the UK playing soccer in support of local food banks. High profile areas within the centres of a number of UK cities will be shut off, and "pitches" will be created for impromptu matches. Many of these areas will also have an under 7's zone, so kids of Little Kickers age can get involved, too.
So let's not let the adults have ALL the fun, bring your Little Kickers along to enjoy our designated Little Kickers areas!
We will be playing games, scoring goals and playing matches across all of the dates. Make sure you tune into www.footyforfood.com
and the Little Kickers Facebook page (www.facebook.com/littlekickers
) to find out the venues nearer the time!
We hope that as many of you can make it as possible! You may even get to meet our furry friend – Lenny the Lion!
