City's Community Foundation will support Children's Mental Health Week - by providing over 40 children across the district with free footballs. 

The pledge will see each player within the club's Football Development Programme's under-9s to under-14s age categories receive a free football. 

Place2Be's Children's Mental Health Week launched in 2015, and this year runs from February 1 to February 7. 

Now in its seventh year, the campaign aims to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health. 

Adam Fox, head of the Football Development Programme, said: "This is fantastic for our players, and will help them keep active and engaged throughout this lockdown."
Qasim Akhtar, Bradford City Community Foundation's business development officer, added: "Supporting children in the community is ultimately our main aim, and so we are pleased to be able to help people in any small way we can."
