Gregor Tennent, the Assistant Manager at the Pars Foundation talks about the work of the charity:

“The Pars Foundation have been delivering community work on behalf of Dunfermline Athletic Football Club for three years.

Since its birth in May 2013 we have provided football programmes for children at primary schools as well as midnight league football in partnership with Police Scotland and local charity Heart and Sound.

We have three established School Engagement programmes, sponsored by Tesco Dunfermline, which focus on literacy, health and wellbeing.

Our “Tours for Schools” gives children the opportunity to learn about the wider employment related aspects in the world of football including business, accounting, retail, hospitality, physiotherapy, media and maintenance.

We have a range of fitness programmes for men and women, with a specialist class for new mums called “Baby Buggy Boot Camp”.  This helps mum’s bounce back into fitness while including their baby in the activities.

The Pars Foundation’s newest programme “Pars Rising Stars” will start in May and work with children who have a range of physical and mental disabilities giving them the opportunity to take part and learn new football skills and more importantly have fun.

There are many other new plans in the pipeline and the Pars Foundation will be looking to increase opportunities for as many families in Dunfermline and West Fife as possible.”
