Football

Each month, The Ark runs a football project in partnership with another local youth group in Dalmellington, East Ayrshire. Funded initially by the council, the football tournament allows young people from different backgrounds (who may never have met otherwise) to come together through sport. Initially very wary of each other and unsure whether to be friends, the group now interacts with one another freely and have built up very positive relationships. 

At the end of each term, The Ark hosts an award ceremony in which the points from the tournament are counted up with trophies and medals awarded to all the participants.
