The Foundation also welcomed groups from around South Wales who have been raising awareness about mental health through football, for a tour of Cardiff City Stadium.

The young people, who are from the Vale mental health service, played out a fixture at Jenner Park in Barry before the Bluebirds Charity gave them a behind-the-scenes look at the home of Cardiff City.

The Bluebirds Charity were also at Cardiff Met University to celebrate International Day of the Girl with Sport Cardiff last week.

The mass participation event allowed over 400 girls to take part in a range of activities, including football, rugby, cricket and athletics.
