HEROS Week 2022

The week of the 8-12th August saw the 15th year of the HEROS cross-community hockey programme, with young people from Ballynafeigh coming together with kids from across Belfast, Lisburn, Holywood, Swords, Finglas and Kinloss for a week long programme of hockey and other teambuilding experiences! The young people took part in ice-hockey sessions, as well as African drumming, outdoor activities, climbing, meeting some wee bugs and beasties, and having a big hockey game and presentation in Dundonald Ice Bowl on the final day. The aim of the programme is to use sport to develop leadership skills amongst the young people and promote a greater understanding and respect for each other.
