Darwen born dad of one and co-founder and community director Graham Sims said: “We started this so we can connect dads, grandads and male guardians in an environment where they can have fun and burn a few calories whilst making new friends.”

Since things broke out in Ukraine the director of Teamkickabout wanted to help.

Peter Brooks co-founder and managing director decided to drive to Poland where he could deliver items donated by friends, family and members of the Teamkickabout community.

Peter said: “The truth is, it’s an awful situation that none of us can fully comprehend. I feel that if you are in a position to be able to help, even the smallest bit, you do. If you can, you give – it should be as simple as that.

“We have a great group of dads here, many of whom want to help and to be part of something positive.”

If you are a Ukrainian father or know one who may be interested in joining the group, please email

Teamkickabout has a Facebook page, Facebook group, website, Twitter and YouTube channel to showcase what the dads get up to on the pitch.
