Darwen, father-of-one and co-founder and community director, Graham Sims, said: “We started this so that we could connect dads, grandfathers and male guardians in an environment where they can s have fun and burn some calories while making new friends.”
Ever since things broke out in Ukraine, the manager of Teamkickabout has wanted to help.

Peter said: “The truth is, it’s a horrible situation that none of us can fully comprehend. I think if you are able to be able to help even the smallest, you do. If you can, you give – it should be that simple.
“We have an amazing group of dads here, many of whom want to help out and be part of something positive.”
If you are a Ukrainian dad or know one who might be interested in joining the group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Teamkickabout has a Facebook page, a Facebook group, a website, Twitter and a YouTube channel to show what dads are doing in the field.
