WATCH: Sheffield project uniting refugees and students through love of football returns

31 March 2022

In the wake of the Ukraine refugee crisis, Sheffield’s student volunteers, Global Community Football, is returning for the city’s refugees and asylum seekers. 

After a year’s break due to Covid-19, three volunteer students Alistair Spencer, Joshua Hollingworth Flint and Zeyana Khamis Al Aamri are hoping to bring back the initiative to its original popularity.

Spencer said: “It (refugees) is clearly an issue which is not going away, the only thing we can do with these massive amounts of people is integrate and accept them in a country like our own where it is safe to live”.

Students and refugees are invited to Goals Sheffield on Sundays between 12pm and 1pm to help bring the community together.
