Pro Touch SA is providing taster classes to boys and girls, aged 11 to 16 years old, from 9.45am to 11.am March.

Organisers hope the initiative, which has been funded by Islington Council and the Cripplegate Foundation, will improve access to sports clubs for disadvantaged kids.

Ash Rahman, 37, who runs Pro Touch SA, told the Gazette: “We want to offer healthy active lifestyle opportunities to kids from the area.

“So we’ve launched this new Sunday morning project which has everything, from fitness to fencing, so we can give kids a flavour of what we do here.
