Walking Football Challenge

It may not have escape your notice that it is both Cloch’s 50th Anniversary and the World Cup 2018 in Russia this summer. To mark both, Cloch staff organised a Walking Football Festival in June and invited other local housing associations to join in.  One hot Sunday Morning, 3 teams from Cloch made up of staff, Board Members a few family members and friends, took on 2 teams from River Clyde Homes and 1 from Oak Tree Housing Association.  The next three hours was a steep learning curve for everybody as they all battled it out to learn how to not run when playing football and win a round robin of matches at the same time.  Eventually, victory went to the Oak Tree team who trounced River Clyde City 6-1 in the final. 

As well as having a fun and exhausting morning, the walking football teams raised £133 for the three local charities that Cloch are supporting this year, Compassionate Inverclyde, Underheugh Ark and Crohn’s Disease Association
