Put on hold in the 2020-21 school year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the #SeriousSupport Schools Programme, supported by the Ladies Gaelic Football Association and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust charity, is back. The #SeriousSupport Schools Programme aims to reduce the drop-out rate in sport participation amongst girls in their junior cert cycle through workshops and training sessions led by current or former inter county players working as athlete mentors in secondary schools across the country.

Lidl are now seeking nominations from schools and parents across the country for their chosen secondary school to be 1 of 26 set to benefit from the programme that will begin delivery after the Halloween mid-term break. To enter, the nomination form available on www.lidl.ie/serioussupport must be completed, including entering a 10 digit unique Lidl receipt code from either a paper or Lidl Plus digital receipt, by the deadline of Sunday, 10th of October.
