Fancy a feel good supper at Alf's....................
Tonight we're holding a fundraising supper for the charity Access Sport which was founded in 2004. Access Sport is a dynamic charity whose mission is to give more children, particularly in disadvantaged areas, access to a wide range of quality local sport. They do this through empowering the inspirational community volunteers who set up and run local sports clubs with cash, expert advice and networking.
Access Sport holds many 'SportsJAM' festivals throughout the year through which their club development programmes meet an urgent need and bring lasting change to areas where young people and their communities benefit most from sport’s unique power to engage.
