Young footballers help vulnerable and lonely

Young footballers help vulnerable and lonely

TWO Skelmersdale junior football teams came up with a plan to help the vulnerable and lonely this Christmas.

The JN Blues Under 11s and JN Academy Under 11s made up 18 hampers of food with two going to a care home.

A spokesperson for the teams said: “We were inspired by Marcus Rashford and we were blown away with the kindness from the community. The motto of the appeal was spread the love and not the virus this Christmas.”
