Trunds celebrates Kicks anniversary
Community Trust project Premier League Kicks celebrated its fifth anniversary this week with Swans club ambassador Lee Trundle joining the celebrations in Pontardawe.
Kicks is a self-funded project, set-up and jointly run by Swans community trust and the local community, creating a youth club for young people between the age of 11 and 19 to keep active.
Youth leader, Mark Jones said: “To celebrate 5 years of the project and youth club is a big achievement for the community.
“Lee Trundle has come down to help mark that occasion tonight which we are very grateful for, the kids have loved meeting and talking to him about what he’s been up to and his career with the Swans.
Lee joined the children in launching the annual balloon race before signing autographs and meeting people apart of the project.
Kicks coach, Rhodri Morgan said: “The project is all about getting young people involved, it gets kids off the street, gives them a chance to make new friends and hang out in a safe, friendly, supervised environment.
“As well as the fun here, we do off site activities, we go and do things like rock climbing, go to theme parks and play sports outside.
Caitlin, who attends Kicks said: “It give us a chance to hang out with our friends, meet new people, we can chill out on the sofas, listen to music, play games – a bit of football outside or pool inside, it’s great to be a part of.
