This Girl Can Wirral

Are you a girl aged 13-16? If so, you're invited to join the #ThisGirlCaninWirral squad as an ambassador! You could help get other girls signed up to local sport and activities, and get invited to exciting new stuff happening near you...

What is This Girl Can?

The This Girl Can Wirral campaign is aimed specifically at girls aged 13-16 after research showed 85% of girls were not doing the recommended amount of exercise a week. The campaign will focus on helping girls in the area feel more confident and boosting their self-esteem with fun activities.

Wirral Council has partnered up with The Yog Bar for the campaign with sisters and owners of the local business, Stephanie and Charlotte Hodson, pledging to support the campaign and future activities.

Owner of The Yog Bar, Stephanie Hodson said: “When the council asked us to become advocates for ‘This Girl Can’ there was absolutely no hesitation in saying yes. 

“I’m from a fitness background myself, and after seeing the research that shows teenage girls are put off from being active, this is something I feel passionate about helping with. I know that by putting our heads together and making ‘getting active…attractive’ we can really make a change across Wirral.

Along with the This Girl Can Wirral team, the 30 ambassadors will help to plan events to help encourage other girls their age to get involved and find the sports and activities right for them.
