StreetGames and Us Girls support Sport England’s This Girl Can campaign


Today marks the launch of Sport England’s exciting new campaign, This Girl Can. It’s a sassy celebration of active women which aims to show that whatever your size, ability or previous experience, sport can be enjoyable. The campaign’s TV advert will also debut tonight at 7.45pm on ITV!
