Young volunteers were the focus during a recent celebtraory event in Titanic Belfast as part of the €1.7m, PEACE IV funded Sport Uniting Communities project.
Volunteers aged between 14 and 24 from the 45 participating football, GAA and rugby clubs across Northern Ireland, Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan were recognised for their contributions to their respective sports.
Since the project was launched earlier this year it has engaged with thousands of people across the eligible area through the Game of Three Halves events; a Good Relations Conference; a Syrian Refugee project and a number of local school visits to the Education and Heritage Centre at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park.
The overall aim of Sport Uniting Communities is to utilise sport to create meaningful and sustained contact between people from different communities and to improve attitudes, respect, inclusion and tolerance.
