Cosham gets creative for street kids
The weekly ‘Kidz Klub’ at Cosham Baptist Church in Portsmouth rounded off a great afternoon recently by creating a banner for the Street Child World Cup.
The theme for the club had been helping those who suffer and it focused on the plight of street children.
The children learnt about the Street Child World Cup and used handprints to demonstrate their desire for the suffering of street children to end.
The club regularly attracts more than 40 junior school aged children and is a mixture of messy games, loud music, competitions, a wacky panto and teaching.
Simon Ford, youth minister at the church, said, “Most of the kids love playing football and they all love having fun, so when they heard about the Street Child World Cup they all wanted to help.
“Many of them have been keeping up to date with the scores and I’ve been sharing good news with them from the conference.”
The Deloitte Street Child World Cup finished on Sunday with India winning the tournament and the BMS-supported Nicaragua team reaching the semi-finals.
