WIN a Mental Health Athlete Mentorship Programme and £1,000 in new sports equipment for your local secondary school
Did you know 45% of young people in Northern Ireland say that their mental health deteriorated during the pandemic? (*Source: The Prince’s Trust Youth Index, 2021)
That’s why we have teamed up with Youth Sport Trust, the UK&I’s leading charity improving young people’s education and development through sport, to offer 25 secondary schools across NI the opportunity to participate in the inaugural Lidl Community Works Sport for Good schools programme.
With a nationwide team of specially trained elite athletes at the ready, we are committed to teaching students about the long-term physical and mental health benefits of sports participation. These athlete mentors will run workshops and take sessions with the students that will help increase their confidence and resilience while also providing them with tools to help manage their own mental health into adulthood.
On top of all that, each chosen school will also receive £1,000 in brand new sporting equipment of their choice.
