Big Hearts is More Than Football – Campaign & Activities 2018
Big Hearts will take part this year again in the #MoreThanFootball Action Weeks taking place between the 21st March and the 8th April 2018!
Launched last year by the European Football Development Network, the campaign aims to promote the community projects from Football Clubs and Charities throughout Europe, focused on the power of football as a tool for social development.
