Firefighter Daniel Walker from Stockhill and Community Engagement Manager, Guninder Nagi, are working closely with Nottingham-based The Pythian Club to break down barriers, look at potential recruitment and foster good relationships with young Black and Minority Ethnic people in Nottinghamshire.
The Pythian Club aims to better the lives of young people through positive initiatives such as education, football, boxing, performing arts and music programmes. Founded in 2014, the Club runs several programmes which work towards ending youth violence.
Station Manager Tom Farr said: “We fully appreciate the benefits of how sports can be used to enrich young people’s lives and develop skills for later life.
“White Watch and Stockhill Fire Station are pleased to be working alongside the Pythian Club, to help develop and empower young people in our communities.”
