Due to the new national lockdown, Brixworth Juniors under 9s have found ourselves without their beloved football!, rather than fill their spare time in front of a screen they decided to do something that would be fun, keep them active and perhaps help some people in the local community less fortunate than ourselves.
So between our two team the Panthers and Jaguars we are aiming to walk the 874 miles between Lands End to John o Groats, we’ve calculated that each of our 29 players and coaches will need to walk the equivalent to 1 mile each per day for the duration of lockdown.
It would be great for both the players and the Re:store Northampton they seeks to support vulnerable people within the Borough of Northampton, through practical means. The charity desires to offer people a hand-up rather than just a hand out, and does this through equipping individuals and families with skills for independent living.
Wish us all luck and if you can donate if only £1 then it all goes to a great cause.
Well done everyone! I'm so proud of your amazing efforts x
Well done team and big shout out to Jay H-H x
