TACC FC - GoFitba - Dundee Print E-mail

TACC has donated £6000 to fhe Scottish Football Partnership Trust (SFPT) GoFitba Project.  This will allow 40 school children in Dundee to take part in a 12 week

football-based health and well-being project in conjunction with Dundee East Community Sports Club.


GoFitba provides opportunities for some of Scotland's most disadvantaged primary school children (P4-P7) to take part in a weekly two-hour, free to access fun sport

and health education initiative.  The project takes a holistic approach to teach children the benefits of regular physical activity within a football environment, with each

structured session providing the Scottish Governments minimum daily target of one hour of moderate physical activity.


During the second hour of each session, the participants take part in an interactive educational journey with their very own GoFitba learning journal to explore the benefits

of leading a healthy lifestyle through diet and nutrition.  The final component of each session sees the children being served a hot healthy meal and an opportunity to enjoy

some social time with their peers.  This serves to further enhance the learning experience on diet and nutrition and crucially ensures the children are being fed outwith

school hours, helping to tackle food poverty.


"We look forward to seeing GoFitba develop and grow with the fantastic support provided by TACC" said Stuart McCaffrey, Chief Operating Officer, SFPT.
