Diana Faid, RotherFed’s community sports organiser in Maltby, said: “I am based at the church and they said they had ten people coming down from North Carolina to work with them and they asked if there was anything they could get involved with.

“We wanted to reach out to the children in that area as well because they said they didn’t have to do so I organised a sports session.”

The Americans also took part in a community clean-up event during their stay in Maltby last week.

A group from Full Life Church will travel to the United States as part of the exchange project.

Ms Faid said: “I think sport is really important because it gets kids engaging with each other and as well as helping improve their health, it’s good fun.”
