NEWS: Sky Blues Supporting Children In Need

Kwame Thomas and Dion Kelly-Evans heading for the Coventry Building Society...

16 November 2017

This Friday (17th November) Children in Need returns to BBC One as they look to raise money to help disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

Children in Need runs throughout the year with fundraisers and donations, but this Friday caps the live television broadcast.

This year, Kwame Thomas and Dion Kelly-Evans will be heading to the Coventry Building Society on Friday Evening as they look to help and support Children in Need.

They will also be joined by Dave Busst from the Sky Blues in The Community (SBiTC), as well as club mascot, Sky Blue Sam.

Children in Need helps support SBiTC as through funding of FREE turn up and play multi-sport activities during school holiday periods for children in around the area.

The activities take place in parks, multi-use games areas and other community venues in 14 areas across Coventry and Warwickshire during the day in school holidays. Sky Blues coaches deliver two hours of FREE multi-sport games and activities for children aged 8-18.

Children can just turn up to the sessions, with no need to book in advance. Activities last for two hours, and our coaches deliver sessions twice each week at all venues.

Last month, members of the Sky Blues squad paid a visit to Moat House Leisure Centre, where they joined in with the Children in Need supported multi-sport sessions.
