On Sunday 21st July 2019 at 3pm, the Victory Youth Group hosted a charity football match linked to their Life’s Worth Living campaign against gun and knife crime.
The match consisted of a crowd of over 700 young people from all over London, and as far as Gravesend. The regions North and West teamed up against South and East in a battle to see who would come out on top.
The audience supported every step of the way throughout the match. Sama from North London, said the following:
“The LWL Football charity match was such a great incentive! I was really privileged to be part of such an amazing day with hundreds of young people, not only to show support on the day but to be a part of the change we are fighting for. The match was undeniably fun, enjoyable and competitive all at once.”
Within the first 30 seconds the North West team had already scored, causing excitement and an uproar. It’s clear from this who the winners of the match were, with an excellent win of 5 – 4. Eventful would not be sufficient enough to describe the day.
Despite how much of a success it was, it was nothing but a warm up in comparison to the real event taking place this coming Saturday at 3pm.
The Victory Youth Group have organised marches through South and North London, and this Saturday 27 July at 3pm they will make their mark in East London as they march from Canning Town to Stratford. Continuing to prove that there is hope for the youth of today.
