Poppleton Road Out of School Club summer activities open to all - thanks to help from Benenden

17th August 2015

A range of summer activities will be taking place at Poppleton Road School over the school holidays - with children aged 4-14 years benefiting from various activities including team games and short matches of new and traditional sports aimed at the children working together and having fun.

Health and wellbeing provider Benenden – based near the school on Holgate Park Drive - have come on board to support the Multi Sports sessions taking place in August. Activities on offer for the children during session will include traditional ball games such as rounders, football and dodgeball, as well as fun team games that all ages can join in with.

The club, which is run by a committee of volunteers, relies on external funding to help offer scholarship places at no cost to parents/carers. Financial support from organisations like Benenden helps to ensure that children who may otherwise have missed out on participating are given the opportunity to join in and experience new activities.

Nicola Taylor, Communications Co-ordinator at Benenden said: “School may be out for summer, but ensuring these sessions aren’t out of reach is something we’re delighted to sign up to. The volunteers running this project do valuable work that encourages children to get involved in physical activity, rather than sitting in front of the television for six weeks. It also provides some respite for parents and guardians finding it difficult to keep children entertained. This fits in with Benenden’s promotion of good health and wellbeing with the added bonus of making the sessions accessible to all.”

Sharon Hill from Poppleton Road Out of School Club said, “It’s important for us to keep our fees down to make the club as accessible as possible – without the help of organisations like Benenden we wouldn’t be able to make this happen. I’d like to thank Benenden for their support and I’m sure the children will really enjoy the range of activities we have on offer this Summer!”
