Fundraiser Recap: Cathkin Blazes Football Club!

3 August 2023

In July, our canteen hosted an impactful fundraiser that generated £1500 in support of Cathkin Blazes football team.

Cathkin Blazes is a community football team founded in Cathkin Park in May 2021. The purpose of the club is to give people an opportunity to (re)connect in the safety of an outdoor space. The club creates a space for women and non-binary players to take part in inclusive, free, beginner-friendly football in the park, and form a community for those who have experienced barriers to entry in the past, due to gender, race or sexuality. Based in Govanhill, Cathkin Blazes encourages players representing marginalised genders and diverse backgrounds to take up space in sport.

The event featured delicious food by club members Parveens, DJs, and spirited karaoke, making it a memorable success that will contribute to empowering the team and promoting a more inclusive sports culture that celebrates the power of sports in bringing people together and breaking barriers!
