  • Winning clubs will receive brand new training accessories and £4,000 to go towards new sporting equipment

European gold gymnast Rhys McClenaghan, four-time Paralympic gold swimmer Bethany Firth and MMA gold medallist and Jiu Jitsu champion Leah McCourt joined Lidl Northern Ireland to help power a new generation of champions as part of a healthy new initiative – Lidl Community Works Sport for Good.

With more than one in four young people struggling with their mental health*, taking part in sport has been shown to have both physical and mental benefits for children, improving social skills, self-esteem, body confidence and the ability to deal with peer pressure. Lidl Northern Ireland’s new Sport for Good programme is designed to encourage and support young people to make the most of the physical and mental benefits of sport participation.

The new Sport for Good programme means that hundreds of sporting clubs and organisations are in with a chance to win brand new training accessories as well as £4,000 to secure all the essential equipment they need to keep them on track and improve their game.

In total, the Lidl Community Works Sport for Good programme will invest £160,000 into 38 winning local clubs. With one winning club per store, Lidl Northern Ireland encourages shoppers to nominate their favourite youth sports club online. Customers can nominate their club using a 10-digit code from any Lidl receipt before Thursday 30th May 2019.

The Sport for Good initiative forms part of Lidl Northern Ireland’s longstanding ‘Community Works’ programme which first launched in 2014. Committed to providing local support, Lidl Community Works has engaged with over 750 community groups to date.

Last year, Lidl Northern Ireland raised more than £420,000 for local charities and community groups, including its National charity partner NSPCC Northern Ireland.
