Truro and Penwith College have recently secured over £1,000 of Sport England 'Sportivate' funding to help deliver a programme of football drop-in sessions targeting Automotive and Construction students who are studying at the colleges campus.









Many of the students who are participating in the football sessions have not accessed sport since leaving school, and the new opportunities to play regular sport have been extremely well received with over 50 students regularly taking part. The funding, which was accessed via the Cornwall Sports Partnership, will help establish regular football drop-in opportunities at the College.

Julian Wills, Truro and Penwith College Sports Maker said "The key to the projects success is keeping things simple. The sessions are delivered in such a way that participants can just come along and play, there is no commitment to representing a team or training, it's all about dropping in and having fun."

The project forms part of the Truro and Penwith College 'Health, Well-being and Sport' programme which provides sports and physical activity to support students throughout their time at college, and help them achieve their academic goals.
