My story

[p]Starting on Friday 26th June, Life Leisure staff will be taking on the Lockdown 24 Challenge to help raise awareness and much needed funds for Street Soccer Academy (SSA). [/p][p]For many years Life Leisure Houldsworth Village has been the venue for Soccer 24, a 24-hour charity football match whereby an SSA team takes on willing opponents for 24 hours straight. Due to the restrictions imposed under the current Coronavirus crisis it is not possible to host the football-based event this year, severely impacting the charity’s fundraising potential for 2020. Fortunately Lockdown-24 has been created in its place.[/p][p]What is Lockdown 24?[/p][p]LOCKDOWN 24 is a 24-hour fundraising campaign with all funds raised going towards the ongoing work of the charity in their work with isolated individuals. All funds raised by LOCKDOWN 24 go towards the ongoing work of the charity in their work with isolated individuals.[/p][p]A small team of Life Leisure staff are going to take part in a 24-hour walking challenge with a twist. The team will pass the baton (Street Soccer Academy shirt) across Greater Manchester and Lancashire. Each team member will aim to do at least 6-hours of walking. But every hour they must take on a sporting or fitness challenge. This could range from keepy-uppies to press-ups. The people who donate will be able to put forward suggestions. So the challenge, not for the feint--hearted will test people both physically and mentally.[/p][p]Who are Street Soccer Academy?[/p][p]Street Soccer Academy is a professional service provider that specialises in the rehabilitation and reintegration of people with complex and multiple needs. They work on behalf of some of the nation’s hardest to reach groups within our communities including, people with homeless related issues, ex-offenders, those recovering from addictions, mental health conditions and disabilities and the long-term unemployed.[/p][p]Follow Life Leisure’s Facebook page, twitter and Instagram accounts to track the team and see how they get on with the challenges.[/p][p]Life Leisure’s partnership with Street Soccer Academy dates back to 2009.[/p][p]The Life Leisure staff football team would take part in an annual football tournament based in Bristol and latterly in Loughborough. Every year 3 people from the Street Soccer Academy would be selected on merit to join the Life Leisure Team and play alongside staff; all expenses paid.[/p][p]The partnership continued to develop, with Houldsworth Village became the venue for the Stockport Street Soccer Academy programme. In 2019 the programme moved to the new Brinnington Park Leisure Complex.[/p][p]In 2015, Houldsworth Village became the home of Soccer24, a 24-hour football challenge which had a Street Soccer Academy representative team take on 24 other teams, back-to-back for 24 hours. Soccer24 was a vital event in the Street Soccer Academy calendar and helped to raise much needed funds for the charity.it was an event that Life Leisure we’re proud to support.[/p][p][br][/p]
