Two Sheffield Wednesday players are showing their ongoing support to a National Citizen project, a programme that works with young people in the area, by extending their ambassador roles.
Right back Liam Palmer and Owls captain Glenn Loovens will further their support for the National Citizen Service (NCS) and commit themselves to promoting the service for the 2015/16 season.
The ambassador role will see the Owls pair attend special NCS activities, take part in press events and promote the project via their own social media.
NCS, delivered by the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme, is a government-funded youth programme designed to bring together people aged 15-17 from a wide range of backgrounds and teach them how to communicate and work as a team while contributing to their local community.
Lucy Shuttleworth, NCS Co-ordinator at Sheffield Wednesday, said: “We feel that it’s fantastic to have such strong support from our player ambassadors. Not only does it give the young people the inspiration to succeed on the programme but the pride that they feel when they are recognised by Liam and Glenn is unmeasurable.”
