Year Eight pupils from Cardiff West Community High School progress as Heat winners as part of this year's Premier League Inspires Challenge.

Participants from Cardiff City FC Community Foundation's Inspires project were challenged to create social action idea that will significantly benefit and make a positive difference to Cardiff City Football Club and the surrounding community.

The winning idea from Cardiff City FC and Cardiff City FC Foundation's Club Heat was pitched to the Foundation's panel of industry experts, including representatives from Prince's Trust Cymru, Welsh Assembly and South Wales Police.

The winners pitched an inclusive outdoor gym which would benefit the residents of the Ely and Caerau area of Cardiff, allowing all members of their community to access the free facility at any time.

The achievements of this group along with the other 29 participating professional football Clubs and their club community organisations will now be recognised at a celebratory event at the end of April in London. 

Inspires is the latest Cardiff City FC Community Foundation initiative. The project supports children in secondary education who are at risk of not achieving their full potential. 


The programme sets out to inspire children and young people to develop personal skills and positive attitudes to succeed in life.


Inspires supports participants engagement using the theme of football and supports secondary schools to keep pupils present and committed whilst encouraging others to re-engage with school life.
