Local Liberal Democrat candidate Lynne Featherstone kicked off her re-election campaign this week with a training session with local football club, Chettle Court Rangers, to celebrate their recent lottery award and ongoing youth work.
Lynne met with young footballers and club founders at the Ferry Lane pitch on Jarrow Road. The Stroud Green based football club was started by Chettle Court resident Ricardo Mfuka, to give the estate's young people something to do after school. Most recently, the club has been awarded money from the Big Lottery Fund to extend its youth work to children with special educational needs.
Lynne Featherstone comments:
"Chettle Court Rangers do amazing work with kids from all over Haringey, across ages and abilities. It's open to all and has a great ethos of wanting to help young people get a focus and passion in life.

"Ricardo really has something very special going on here, having started with a small team of young people from Stroud Green, he is now going from strength to strength and is branching out to help kids with special educational needs from across Haringey. Hats off for his truly inspirational work!
