McDonald’s franchisee Grant Copper is providing 120 hours of free, safe, fun football sessions for local children from Worthing

At St Andrews High School in Worthing, there are four fun-filled dates that will get children between the ages of five and 11 active and playing football again.

Getting kids active after a long year of lockdown restrictions is key to keeping them mentally and physically healthy. Whether they are first-timers or keen to get back to developing their skills, every child can turn up, take part and enjoy.

In partnership with Football Associations across the UK, McDonald’s and franchisees - including Copper - are providing hundreds of free sessions delivered by a team of fully qualified coaches in over 600 locations across the UK during 2021.

In Worthing alone there are four sessions for parents/carers to sign their children up for, meaning 120 under elevens will have the opportunity to learn from top FA coaches.

Two sessions have taken place but there are still spaces available at sessions on May 1 and May 9, both from midday to 1pm.

All sessions are held in a safe environment. They all follow the latest Government protocols and are designed with our UKFA partners and their latest grassroots guidance.

Copper said: “I’m thrilled we can help get children back playing football again together after such a long period of isolation.”
