Calderdale Inter-Services Football Tournament 2014

In the lead up to the World Cup this summer The Basement Recovery Project, in partnership with Foundation and the Job Centre organised a football tournament to bring individuals together who use the various services across the Calderdale area.

Taking part were teams from Lifeline, Conn3ct, TBRP together with two teams from Foundation (Lancashire and Leeds) who sponsored the event.
