Posted: Fri, 14 Jan 2022 11:45
SASP were pleased to be delivering the Holiday Activities and Food Programme - The Happy Healthy Holidays Somerset Programme again in partnership with Somerset County Council this winter. This ran over the December school holidays for children on benefits free school meals. The programme was made up of 4 parts, with providers delivering 4 hour offers of physical activity and also providing a nutritious meal, family day activities, delivery on school sites for their own specific school pupils and also online interactive on demand virtual activities to do at home.
We were pleased to have 80% of young people attend the amazing activities on offer from providers, which equated to 7019 day places taken.
The feedback from parents has been really positive with parents and young people saying the following,
Sat round the campfire eating hot stew after a day of tree climbing, axe throwing, elf rescue and canoeing - a girl says, "I didn't think I'd be able to do any of that, I nearly didn't come today...I can't wait for tomorrow!"
"I love making pancakes and learning to cook on the fire"
We are pleased to announce that SASP will continue to deliver this programme for the Easter holidays in 2022 and applications open for funding on Monday 17th January.
