COMMUNITY: Children in Need and Turn to Us holiday activities delivered to over 250 children & families during Half Term

6 November 2019

Sky Blues in the Community in partnership with the Moat House Community Trust continued the successful Turn to Us Holiday programme during October Half Term, with over 150 families attending the programme over two days.

The Turn to us programme also saw a visit from the Lord Mayor of West Midlands, Andy Street, who saw first-hand the impact the project has on children and their families from the Wood End, Henley Green and Moat House area.

The Sky Blues in the Community activities included cricket, crab football and bubble football over the two days, with the Moat House Community Trust staff providing a healthy meal for all the children and their families.

Sky Blues in the Community’s Inclusion Coordinator, Sam Flatley said “ It has been a fantastic half term of activities delivered across Coventry as part of the Turn to Us and BBC Children in Need projects, benefiting many families during half term where it can be a difficult time for some.”  

In addition to the Turn to Us project, Sky Blues in the Community was also piloting a new holiday activity scheme within the Tile Hill area of Coventry, in partnership with the Mosaic Family Hub. Over two days during October Half Term, the partnership saw the deliverery of various multi-sport activities by Sky Blues in the Community and a healthy meal provided by the Mosaic Family Hub to over 100 children and their families.

The Mosaic Family Hub Supervisor, Sarah Burke commented “This is our first event in partnership with Sky Blues in the Community and the Children in Need project, with the two days seeing over a 100 people attending. Being able to offer these kinds of events and programmes is a great opportunity for young people and their families in the area to come together, take part in activities and to be provided a healthy meal. The Mosaic Family Hub is the central venue of the community and allows us to bring people together from the area to try new things.”

It has been a great October Half Term for both projects and has seen Sky Blues in the Community with their partners support hundreds of families across two of the hardest to reach areas of Coventry.
