DFC Foundation Celebrate Two Years of Delivery

On June 7th 2022, nine intrepid souls gathered together at Eastbourne Sports Complex for the first Foundation Delivery of Think With Your Feet. Supported by the National League Trust, we had former Darlington FC player Nathan Cartman come and share with us about his own mental health challenges. Since then TWYF has gone from strength to strength and now between 25-35 people gather each Tuesday afternoon in order to promote positive mental health. Thanks to the National League Trust, The National Lottery, Happiness Hubs and most recently Darlington Building Society this work is continuing at pace. Indeed just on Wednesday we launched a second TWYF at Teesside Airport thanks to the Tees Valley Community Foundation!

Since June 2022, we have now got a full programme of events and projects and we have been able to employ a couple of coaches in Millie Garnett and Nicole Graham on a part-time basis.

Monday - Schools Work, Refugee Football with DAR, Weight Goals

Tuesday - Well Played (indoor sports for mental wellbeing), TWYF, Women's Recreational Football

Wednesday - TWYF 2 at Teesside Airport

Thursday - Schools Work, Weight Goals 2

Friday - Walking Football for Over 50s, Schools Work

Saturday - Matchday Experience

On top of this we have also led a number of successful holiday camps and a six week fitness course with Physique Fitness, Tees Valley Sport and Darlington Baptist Church.

What's next?

On June 24th, we are launching women's walking football for those aged 18+.
