As Westdale embark upon another large scale regeneration scheme for Newport City Homes, we are delighted to have offered our support to local good cause, the “Youf Gang” by sponsoring their brand new football kits.
Shaftesbury youngsters were celebrated at an event today for helping to improve their local environment.
Gwent Police community support officer Richy Davies has been overseeing the Shaftesbury ‘Youf Gang’, which so far has 10 enthusiastic local children aged nine to 14.
He explained: “I have supported the Youf Gang in their endeavours for more than a year. They really are a credit not only to themselves but to the local community. It has been a pleasure to work with and guide the youngsters into hopefully prosperous futures.
“Their journey has been made possible from the support of our partners at Communities First and we hope to continue to work together and help engage with young people for many years to come.”
Adrian Bishop, from Westdale Services Limited, commented: “We are delighted to be sponsoring this very worthwhile cause. Westdale are committed to improving the lives of local people, and give them hope that things can get better.”
Newport City Homes resident engagement officer Kate Aspinwall said: “We have been supporting Youf Gang for some time. They are an incredible group of young people who are real role models to other teenagers, showing what can done when you work together to have fun and look after your community.”
Newport County footballer Ben Tozer presented the Youf Gang with their kits at a special event in Shaftesbury Community Centre.
