Booth House takes the trophy!
A saha lifehouse for people experiencing homelessness in London has carried home the trophy after competing against 5-a-side football teams from across the country.
Hundreds of people from saha and The Salvation Army centres for people experiencing homelessness came together at Goals in Manchester to participate in the annual football tournament.
The teams also had the opportunity to learn skills from former Liverpool FC and England striker Emile Heskey who led a master class at the Army’s annual Partnership Trophy. He also presented the trophy to the winning team – Booth House, London.
Emile Heskey, said: “It’s great that The Salvation Army recognises the power of sport and the part it can play in supporting people experiencing homelessness.
“It’s good to see that they understand how football is a great leveller as once you’re on the pitch you’re judged on your skill rather than anything else.
“Meeting service users at today’s Partnership Trophy has been incredibly inspiring and will stay with me”.
