Active Champions True Role Models In Their Communities

 

The Active Champions have continuously been role models to their local community for the past 5 years!

The Create18 Active East-ER event on the 7th April has shown this on a large scale and a local event.

10 Active Champions took the lead and designed their own event and continuously publicised and shared the event with everyone they knew. Active East-ER was designed around what the Active Champions thought young people in the East End would love to attend, and they did love it! 100 young people and their families making the bus trip from Easterhouse and Coatbridge or a walk round from Bridgeton and Dennistoun to enjoy a day of fun and sporting activities at Crownpoint Glasgow Club.

A true demonstration of young people taking the lead!
