Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, is encouraging local schools to take part in the nation-wide ‘Soccer Aid Schools Challenge’, which is officially launching on Friday.

The Soccer Aid Challenge aims to raise money to help UNICEF’s work for children around the world. The challenge invites schools to team up with pupils to develop a fun football obstacle course to take on together. The annual challenge hasn’t been able to take place over the last two years due to the pandemic, but this year is back better than ever.

Schools who wish to take part can do so by signing up for a fundraising pack. The pack will be full of tips from planning obstacle courses, to making sure as much money is raised for children worldwide.

Commenting, Andrew Gwynne said:

“Soccer Aid is an incredible initiative, which has raised an enormous amount of money for children right across the globe.


The Soccer Aid Schools Challenge is a fun and easy way to get involved. I know lots of students and staff at local schools who are football mad, and would encourage them to take part in this unique challenge which contributes to  such a worthy cause.”
