The London Lions continue to support City Harvest in 2023.
To ‘tip-off’ City Harvest’s EQUALS social impact campaign, the food charity connected London Lions basketball players; Shanice Beckford-Norton and Bradley Kaboza with local east London charity partner, Beckton Globe Youth Zone.
Coincidently the east London community group is big on basketball and even has a court in the Beckton Globe youth centre. The duo ran a skills workshop with the kids and gave out Lions T-shirts, balls and tickets to future games.
Jordan and the team at Beckton Globe Youth Zone run free sports activities, excursions, and learning opportunities for Beckton’s youth.
The Lions aim to inspire future generations to take up basketball. The club recently renovated a community basketball court in Tower Hamlets – London’s worst-hit borough in terms of child poverty.
The ongoing partnership with City Harvest marks the ongoing commitment from the team to make an impact not only on the court but also in the community.
“City Harvest is doing amazing work providing food for those less fortunate. It was great teaming up with them, and Beckton Globe Youth Zone, connecting through our equal love for giving back to the community, and basketball.”
Launching EQUALS at the Copper Box Arena
Following the workshop in Beckton, the Lions helped launch EQUALS at a charity game on March 23 at the Copper Box Arena, with all ticket proceeds supporting City Harvest.
This is the third London Lions charity game, having raised over £7,000 from ticket donations to date. The partnership has so far helped provide over 28,000 meals for children and families in need across the capital.
