Story by Shuna Beckett

In April’s Issue we reported on the state of the basketball courts next to All Saints Youth Club.

Salman, Nasir, Ahmed, Khalid, Mustafa, Mohamed, Amir, Samer, Khalid, Shaab and Ahmed have now worked on this issue with the Messenger. Their enthusiasm has inspired Sheffield Futures’ managers to put on basketball coaching over the summer.

The young people are also planning a summer tournament to raise awareness and funds to improve the council-owned courts.

Bilal said:

“It’s enjoyed by young people but it still needs some improvements, and that can only be done by people participating and helping out.”
