Homeless World Cup 2011
07 JUL 2011
Chapter 1's project The Limes in Manchester has done it again, it is the second time one of their residents has got through to the final selection for the Homeless World Cup, and this time the resident, Courtney Wallace, was chosen for Team England and he is going to Paris to part-take in the game. 64 national teams will be competing at the Homeless World Cup.

‘We, at the Limes, are very proud of Courtney and we will be cheering and supporting him all the way.
The selection is a long drawn-out process which goes on each year. It is about the dedication of the staff at the Limes ensuring they keep up with all that is going on in the sports world, it is about always being there for the lads, it is about getting involved in the community, it is about volunteering and getting our name known to make all the work we do possible.
Dean Ashton is the person who delivers the training and the lessons to the residents in the hostel, and I must say he has done an absolutely amazing and tremendous job, we see the difference, the residents see the difference and the football establishment can see what is being done at the Limes.’, said Pauline Gaye, Project Manager of The Limes, Manchester.
