Everybody Sport and Recreation are delighted to share they have received funding from Cheshire East Council as part of the Holiday Activity Funding, to provide free holiday activity places and packed lunches provided by Taste for Life, for children who are entitled to receive free school meals.

Everybody will be jointly delivering The Multi Activity Days with Cheshire Police as part of their Kops N Kids programme at Crewe Lifestyle Centre and Macclesfield Leisure Centre.

The Multi Activity Days are for aged 8 yrs to school year 8 with lots of different sporting or recreational activities, including team games, challenges and access to the swimming pool within Everybody’s Leisure centres.

Kerry Shea, Executive Director at Everybody Sport and Recreation shared “We are so excited to be offering our Multi Activity Days this summer, and receiving this funding allows us to offer free places for children who receive free school meals. We are delighted to be working in partnership with Cheshire Police on this Kops N Kids programme throughout the holidays, providing fun filled days for children to be active and have fun in a safe environment.”

Insp Andy Smith said: “We’re really pleased to be getting on board with this year’s Kops and Kids organised by Everybody Sport and Recreation. Our officers and PCSOs will be supporting the team to help children stay active and healthy and most importantly, have fun.

As well as getting kids fit in a fun environment, these events also strengthen relationships between police and young people and helps builds trust between them, which is vital in building better communities. This is just one of many initiatives we get involved with. We also have dedicated officers and PCSOs who go into our local schools on a regular basis to build on that vital relationship.”
