During February Half-Term, Sky Blues in the Community and Moat House Community Trust hosted a Coventry City player visit, where 50 children, parents and carers met Sky Blues First Team Players Jack Grimmer, Chris Stokes, Ryan Haynes and Dominic Hyam.
The day was part of the holiday programme supported by BBC Children in Need to enable children, parents and carers to enjoy activities such as Football, Basketball, Arts & Crafts and much more.
With the help of Tesco Fareshare, a hot meal was also provided by Moat House Community Trust to those who attended.
The afternoon saw the players participate in a range of multi-sport activities with the children and their families; followed by a question & answer session as well as an opportunity for photographs.
Dianne Williams, Chief Executive of the Moat House Community Trust, said: “Our partnership with Sky Blues in the Community is making such a positive contribution to the area – getting families active and having fun.
"The City players really joined in and connected with the children; everyone was so excited, it was obvious from all the happy, smiling faces that it was a very special day for children and adults alike.”
Sam Flatley, Inclusion Coordinator at Sky Blues in the Community, commented: “It was great to have the CCFC players visit the holiday activities that we deliver locally. The afternoon was a great success with children and their families enjoying interacting with the players as well as learning about what it is like to be a professional footballer.
"Sky Blues in the Community will continue to work closely with the Moat House Community Trust in delivering inclusive activities across the Moat House area as well as surrounding areas, to help improve the lives of children and their families.”
