It’s fun … at the YMCA

Shortly before New Year, Daggers Trust staff, together with coaches from the West Ham United FC Foundation and Officers from the Metropolitan Police TSG, based in Chadwell Heath, ran an afternoon of fun activities for many local children aged from three years upwards at the YMCA in Romford.

This was the second session organised for the YMCA by PC Ryan Baxter and PCO John Joseph (Metropolitan Police Premier League Kicks Liaison Officer). The youngsters participated in a variety of different activities from rock climbing, through to taking penalty kicks in the Daggers Trust inflatable goal. The Met Officers gave the children a chance to sit in one of the TSG Sprinter vans, test out the riot gear and ask questions. The coaches and Officers organised a variety of different games and activities in the YMCA sports hall, assisted by YMCA staff. At the end of the session, the older children took part in an activity looking at stress and how to deal with it.

This undertaking highlighted the ongoing close working relationship between the Daggers Trust, WHU Foundation and the Metropolitan Police. The participation of the Daggers Trust would not have been possible without the generous support from a couple of Daggers’ fans who donated funds to the Trust recently.
