"School holidays can be stressful periods for children from low-income families. Poor provision of appropriate childcare, limited access to enrichment activities, and food insecurity mean that children's health and well-being can suffer, and their learning stagnates or declines". Since 2016 Burgess Sports has introduced healthy food within its holiday programmes. Now we are launching our virtual run series 2020/21. We look to raise funds for our charity's Fit and Fed programme.
Burgess Sports is made up of the fantastic community sports clubs working in the park. We provide after school sessions and holiday camps. Our work provides hundreds of children a chance to be active and enjoy the outdoors.
If you pay £10 it pays for 5 children to take part in an after school session, £25 Pays for a child to do 20 hours on a holiday camp and £150 pays for a ten week course to train a young volunteer.
