An Exmouth football club for youngsters has donated sports equipment to four primary schools in the town.
For the second year, volunteer-run Exmouth United Football Club has donated footballs to four primary schools.
Club chairman Andy Guy and child welfare officer Steve Cross visited St Joseph’s, Beacon, Exeter Road and Marpool primary schools, with each school receiving 16 balls each.
Andy said he was thrilled with the enthusiasm with which the schools responded to the scheme.
He added: “As part of our ethos, we like to encourage youngsters to participate in sporting activities.
“I contacted the schools and they all came back quite quickly.”
Andy is hoping to continue the scheme in future years.
Registered charity Exmouth United is a club for children aged between six and 16 and aims to provide a ‘safe and productive’ environment for them to play football.
The club has teams ranging from under eights to under 16s playing in the Exeter and District Youth League.
