Tuesday 19th March marked the EFL Day of Action and all 72 clubs in the Football League got involved by showcasing their community work, and the Port Vale Foundation welcomed children to a multi-sports session which was a huge success.
There was a total of 75 young people in attendance from neighbouring schools and they enjoyed playing football, handball and hockey, as well as utilising inflatables to test their skills.
Not only that, but they were treated to a surprise visit from Vale's mascot, Boomer! He then joined in with the fun by playing all of the sports on offer, and the day was then topped off by a visit from first-team players Tom Pope and Leon Legge.
This event was just one of many that the Port Vale Foundation organise throughout the year, and they continue to play a vital role in engaging the local community and promoting a healthy, active lifestyle.
Other sessions such as the dance academy, walking football and those which take place in schools also ran across the day, whilst the player development centre and the Football & Education Academy trained along with all age groups of the Port Vale Foundation girls team.
EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey said: “The EFL Day of Action brings together all 72 Clubs to highlight the special role they play in enhancing the lives of millions of people around the country.
“The scale of ground-breaking projects across our network of Clubs continues to grow year-on-year and their delivery is integral to our aims of improving lives in a range of areas including inclusion, homelessness, education and health.”
