FYLDE Rugby Community Foundation is helping children kickstart their day in a positive manner.
In partnership with The Boathouse Youth, which works with children and young people in Blackpool, a free Breakfast Club has been set up at the charity’s two sites – Grange Park and Bloomfield.
From 7:30am-8:30am across Monday-Friday, children are able to attend in bubbles of 15 and begin their day with fun games and a healthy breakfast.
With a Community Coach and two people from the charity in attendance, we are able to provide quality coaching and support all with the aim of ensuring the children are mentally prepared for school.
The Breakfast Club, which is funded by the National Lottery for an initial 12-week program, has been running for a handful of days, but numbers are growing.
Fylde Rugby Community Foundation’s Head of Community Coaching, Phill Mills said: “The reason we are doing this is to set the children up for the day. The sessions are designed to engage the children through a range of fun games involving agility, balance and co-ordination. This is a great way to prepare the brain ready for school. Once finished, we then supply breakfast to each child to enable them to have the best possible start to the day.”
We are always looking to extend the programme and reach more children who really need this support. If you would like to know more about the programme, please email email@example.com.
