Access Credit Management Ltd in the Community
ACM sponsors kids in need
Access Credit Management Ltd are the proud sponsors of the Sheffield DS Active programme - an initiative to provide children with Down's Syndrome the opportunity to have a fantastic time, training and playing football at some of the UK's most hallowed grounds.
The initiative is a community charity managed by The United Initiative (part of Sheffield United Football Club). Sheffield's Down's Syndrome football team have been enjoying football sessions at the Club's Academy since October 2011.
After much hard work training, the DS Active team recently donned the Sheffield Blades colours and played in a tournament at Milton Keynes (organised by community staff of the Milton Keynes' team MK Dons). Our intrepid players then settled down to watch their home team the Sheffield Blades take on the MK Dons in the big stadium (StadiumMK) - for many this was their first experience of all the razzmatazz of a league game.
But it didn't stop there for our DS Active team, our young heroes of the field took part in the half time parade. As they walked around the pitch to the booming applause of the big stadium crowd, there were some huge grins on some little faces!
The following week saw our intrepid heroes take part in a similar tournament hosted by West Bromwich Albion. The excitement continues with more training and events lined up for the year.
"The United Initiative would like to extend massive thanks Access Credit Management who are currently sponsoring our DS Active programme as well as everyone involved in these events including the host clubs, coaches, families, friends and of course the players!", Sheffield FC's United Initiative
