 Stockport County's Community Foundation who champion County in the communities of Stockport, Tameside and Derbyshire have overseen a huge increase in participants in all its projects this year. But it's not
 just the children, young people and those in its flagship disability work which have had fun and reaped the benefits of Stockport County's work.

The County Community team has taken great strides in it’s project to get the over fifties engaged in healthy projects for fun and exercise. Walking Football has continued apace in 2016 since County sent the only North Of England team to represent our great club in the Walking Football tournament finals at Wembley this summer.

As part of an initiative by local business Robinsons, Sheila Barlow  from the Armoury, Edgeley was keen to make a donation to a local charity. After suggestions from her customers she chose the Community Foundation who will use the money to help support their ever growing walking football project.
Helen Foster-Grime, Vice Chairman of Stockport County Community Foundation said “For years The Armoury has been a popular meeting place for Stockport County fans who always receive a warm welcome from Sheila and her team and we would like to thank Sheila for her kind gesture of support."
 Walking Football takes place currently at Stockport Power League on Fridays from 11am and often sees County favorites’ like Manager Jim Gannon and players including Lewis Montrose dropping by to join in the fun.
 Community Foundation Director, Mark Sanderson added, “The project is designed to engage people from Stockport and the surrounding boroughs  in healthy fitness and exercise but it's also seen many friendships formed with great social outings and attracts new people from everywhere each week."
There is no cost to the participants in County's Walking Football and spectators are welcome or can just join in the warm up until they feel more confident to join in. If you fancy something a bit different on a Friday why not give it a whirl!
