FREE HOLIDAY CLUBS FOR LOCAL FAMILIES
Please look out for the ‘Get Stuck In’ holiday clubs which will run from 3-30 August at 16 local venues across Blackburn with Darwen. The clubs will provide a range of fun activities with a hot meal and refreshments, for children aged 4-16 years with a focus on those on FSM’s. The activities will be age appropriate and will be run by experienced partners from the region.
Activities include multi-sports, dance, drama, arts and craft, movie sessions plus splash bubble and pop – and many more!
In addition, the holiday clubs will provide additional support for parents if they need it, with a range of activities including cooking clubs, welfare, debt and employment advice and support for their own well-being.
The organisers are building in social distancing to ensure children are kept safe and contingencies are in place to deal with the changing guidelines as lockdown is eased.
Parents should keep an eye out for further details that will be released over the next few weeks.
The clubs are co-ordinated by a not-for-profit consortium, Spring North, that secured the funding and will work with delivering partners including Blackburn Youth Zone, Blackburn Rovers Football Community Trust, Youth Action, Newground, IMO, BwD Young Peoples Services and Children Centres with support from Westholme School catering.
registration details will be circulated w/c 24th June 2020
