  • Need

    Need

    Hackney and Haringay, the London boroughs Summer Splash! will be servicing, is home to a disproportionate amount of children from poor homes who are in receipt of benefits. Parents are unable to afford to take their children on holidays or trips, and with over 70% of children in these boroughs living in overcrowded homes with very little/no garden access, the children have no where to let off steam and enjoy their holidays. They start the new school year not having had a chance to wind down.

    Solution

    Summer Splash! will provide 3 weeks of action packed, healthy and safe programs and trips for 150 children who otherwise would be left to their own devices during their holidays. The children will enjoy themselves, let off steam and be refreshed to start the new school year. The programs will focus on healthy living: exercise, food and looking after teeth by incorporating lots of fun exercise programs and activities, food demonstrations, visits from dentists and more.
