Walking Football Charity Festival

Charity Walking Football Festival

Derbyshire FA and Belper Leisure Centre have organised a friendly walking football festival on Wednesday 1st August 2018.

We support children and young adults who have life-threatening and life-shortening conditions across South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire, North Nottinghamshire and parts of North Lincolnshire. They currently support over 250 families with respite care, end of life care, short breaks, therapies, counselling, activities and much more.
