It is important that the diverse communities we serve, are aware through the cohesive initiative, we are indeed collectively saving lives. One blood stem donor match has been found in Durham through Kickoff@3 and the hard work of the ACLT Charity.

Thank you Orin and Bev for allowing us to name the Finale in loving memory of your son Daniel De-Gale.

Thanks team. 

Michael

Michael Wallace commented,  

“… its not just about the football, but positive youth engagement, diversion, trust of the Police and career opportunities internally and external with the RAF and other good partners. 

“Also Kickoff@3 are promoting the Police to the media in a good and positive light, especially with regard to our current  challenges in knife crime. …this is the only current National Football , Music and Poetry initiative that is successfully  getting the work done if others are looking for solutions.”
