Over 100 attend event extravaganza at the Lions Centre
Last Friday young people from local estates and youth clubs across Lewisham and Southwark came together at Millwall's indoor Lions Centre to be part of the Millwall Premier League Kicks half-term one day extravaganza.
A team from Rotherhithe ran away with the trophy on the night using home advantage to good effect; this team attends the Friday evening Premier League Kicks session at the Lions Centre.
The evening culminated in an organised football tournament which showcased many local street players and provided excellent entertainment for everyone in attendance.
Millwall Community Trust uses the power of football to engage with young people and then offer information and insightful workshops, invaluable for their social awareness and personal safety.
The second workshop was based around the Ben Kinsella Exhibition, which is currently housed at Millwall. This excellent, interactive info-journey raises awareness around the damaging effects of knife crime and the effect it has on its victims, families and the perpetrators themselves.
This was an interactive workshop with plenty of opportunities for the young people to ask questions and start productive debates within the groups.
Over 100 people attended the event and all the young people started off by taking part in two awareness workshops. The first of these was delivered by the Metropolitan Police and discussed the use of Tasers on the streets of the United Kingdom to combat crime effectively.
