John Clark Motor Group
Streetsport is delighted to continue our relationship with John Clark Commercials.
Their generosity and ongoing support has enabled us to deliver our activities into communities with a fleet of vehicles; which now includes a Zero Emissions van. Our environmentally-friendly electric van has helped us build and develop partnerships within many local schools and will enable us to deliver Street Tennis activities in partnership with Judy Murray throughout 2016 and onwards.
Costs and travel are two of the main barriers that prevent many prevent young people from participating in sport, physical activity and other creative endeavours. That is why all Streetsport activities are ‘free of charge’ and thanks to the John Clark Motor Group we are able to continue delivering our programmes and activities right on the doorstep of local communities and enabling young people to participate in and achieve healthier lifestyles.
Our John Clark sponsored vans have enabled us to help meet demand and in some instances we deployed on 15 occasions during a single week in 2015. As a result Streetsport reached out and achieved over 8,000 participations with hard to reach young people across Aberdeen city making it Streetsport’s most successful year to date. The results and impact were notable with many reductions in anti-social behaviour in the areas that we deployed (on average by 44%). This was only made possible with the support of the John Clark Motor Group.
Furthermore, in 2016 the Group has developed this partnership even more, increasing our fleet to 3 vehicles.
Chris Clark, Operations Director at John Clark Motor Group, said, “supporting the local community is important to the Group, and Streetsport is an excellent project to help youngsters embrace the benefits that sport can bring. I am personally very passionate about exercise and it is a pleasure to know that by providing support to Streetsport we are giving young people access to such a wide range of sports activities.”
