Fit & Fed Success!

During the summer holiday’s this year we delivered Fit & Fed programmes with our partners Arches Local, Medway Sport, Moat Foundation and Strengthening Minds at four sites across Medway including Luton Junior School, Kingfisher Primary School, The Vineries Hub and Strood Sports Centre. We engaged in sport and fed over 400 children in total!

During the October half term we delivered the programme in Luton Junior School, The Vineries Hub and two new sites in Delce Academy in Medway and the Stanhope estate in Ashford recording over 100 children throughout the two weeks.

This programme really is needed across the country with children going hungry and being inactive through the school holidays due to families not being able to afford the extra expense of food and activities that are provided during school terms.

Delce Academy taught us a new way of thinking and fundraising for this programme. They accumalated the funds to cover the costs of the programme for themselves by having a couple of own clothes days during the term and charging the pupils £1. The amount raised by these two days paid for the programme to be ran at their school this half term. This shows how easily this can be done and it provides so much value to each school and their families as it is open to all the students.

If you would be interested in bringing this fantastic programme to your school then please get in touch!
