STEVE DAVIS supports the Paul Hunter Foundation in east lancashire
Steve Davis was in East Lancashire last weekend supporting the Paul Hunter Foundation in partnership with North Lancs Training Group, Lancashire County Council’s Wellbeing and Early Help Service for BME Youth Work in the Burnley, Pendle, Hyndburn, Rossendale and Preston area.
The project aims to bring together young people of all communities using snooker in line with the Foundation’s objectives.
It aims to support the all-round development of participants, their application of maths skills, and develops relationships with other people. The Foundation targets both able bodied and disadvantaged children equally and also aims to increase their self-esteem and teach responsibility of contributing to society in a positive manner.
A 15 week programme in each area has been led and delivered by a team of NLTG staff and teachers from St. Augustine’s RC High School in Billington.
As well as competitive prizes, every young person has received a snooker cue and case personally signed to them by Steve.
Police, drugs awareness and sexual health teams have been on hand for the young people to access support where normally confidence issues may prevent this happening.
Steve Davis said, “It’s been a fantastic few days, bringing these young people together and visiting some of the most successful projects the Paul Hunter Foundation has undertaken and so valuable in these troubled times. It’s fascinating to see that when we create what in essence are temporary snooker clubs for 15 weeks that young people who would normally be hanging about on street corners and potentially getting themselves into trouble which could blight their early adult life are brought together mixing playing snooker, I’m sure Paul would be very proud.”
50 young people from the project have been invited to the UK Championships in York by World Snooker at the end of the month.
