Free holiday clubs are being held again in Leicestershire over the festive break.
‘Leicestershire Holidays Together’ sessions are available for families in receipt of benefits related free school meals and include activities such as arts and crafts, sports, dance, games and music, alongside a nutritious meal.
Eligible parents and carers will receive an e-voucher from Hello@holidayactivities.com. They can then visit the county's HAF page, or Active Together's website to view activities and use their e-code to book a place.
The scheme is part of the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme and is delivered by Leicestershire County Council and Active Together thanks to funding from the Department for Education.
Sessions are held at venues across the county by schools, voluntary and community organisations, childcare providers and sports clubs.
Jane Moore, director of children and families at Leicestershire County Council said: “We’d encourage anyone who is eligible to have a look at what’s on offer.
“These clubs are a great way to learn new skills, have fun and meet new people.”
Geoff Maltby, strategic lead at Active Together said: “We want to ensure that as many eligible children and young people as possible access this opportunity to be active and receive a healthy meal. This is especially important at this time of the year”
