INS scores a goal for Cerebral Palsy United
INS was delighted to support the Cerebral Palsy United football club recently by donating £560 to purchase some pop up goals.
The football club became a registered charity in November 2017, and relies solely on sponsorship, donations and grants to sustain and grow as a club. INS Operations Assistant JulieAnn Heath is a helper at the club, and presented the young footballers with the cheque. JulieAnn said “It’s great to see the benefit the club is having on those with Cerebral Palsy. These pop up goals will help the teams in their training sessions, and all members of the club are very thankful for INS’ donation”.
Cerebral Palsy United FC is a Cerebral Palsy (CP) specific football club which has been formed to provide opportunities and playing provision for children and adults with Cerebral Palsy and other brain injuries. The aim of the club is for every individual to enjoy football in a positive learning environment, regardless of age, ability, gender, experience of mobility.
Training sessions are run by FA and UEFA qualified coaches all of whom are very experienced in disability football and CP specific football at all levels of development from grassroots through to elite. Sessions are designed specifically for players with a physical impairment to not only help technical development but also physical, social and psychological development too. Their long term aim is to help players become the best they can be both on and off the football pitch.
The club has FA Charter Standard Development status and is growing fast with both adults and children. The players, who start as young as three years old, train at various sessions across Partington, Liverpool and Cheshire.
Over the years a number of players from Cerebral Palsy United have represented England CP teams as well as Great Britain in the Paralympics.
INS is based in Cheshire and West Cumbria and is keen to support our employees in their community and charity endeavours in the areas local to our offices.
