Lidl have launched their Community Works Sport for Good Programme to invest funding and resources into local youth sport in Northern Ireland.

The campaign, which focuses on improving children and young people’s mental health by taking part in sport, has donated hundreds of thousands of pounds into community groups so far.

Lidl Community Works hopes that by encouraging young people to make the most of the physical and mental benefits of sport, they can help the in 1 in 4 young people struggling with mental health in the local area.

As part of this campaign, the CPSU has worked with Lidl to produce a new leaflet for parents, advising them on how to best keep their child safe and happy in sport. Thanks to Lidl’s sponsorship, 10,000 of these leaflets will be picked up by parents in stores across the country.

The offer is open to any club in Northern Ireland with an under 18s team or division and shoppers are encouraged to nominate a local sports club by using a 10-digit code on their receipt.

If you live in Northern Ireland and would like to nominate your local club, keep hold of your Lidl receipt and head over to the Lidl Community Works Website to enter your details.
