09/02/19 Everton Matchday Event
On Saturday 9th February we hosted a Youth Mental Health Awareness Match Day Event. The day was a great success with around 20 participants coming along in the morning for an Empower Session at Westfield Academy Sports Centre. During the session we had a great variety of events:
a Boxcleva training session
Andrew Samuels Mind Angels session involving Qigong
Dance class hosted by Kennedy
Football session hosted by some of the Trust's coaches
Afterwards everyone went to Vicarage Road to watch Watford beat Everton 1-0. At halftime Empower participant Anton spoke to the crowd about bullying and mental health. Anton stole the show and his talk was even mentioned on twitter by BBC reporter Emma Saunders and BBC radio 1 DJ Chris Stark!
