Over the summer, lots of kids around Ipswich are attending holiday camps like Inspire Suffolk on Lindbergh Road. Inspire Suffolk’s Summer Holiday Programme has been running sport and creative activities for 250 children over the holiday for 3 years now. Today I joined in and practiced some goalkeeping in the football activity session, as well as getting involved with creating paper-plate art.
These activity sessions for 250 pupils aged 4-12 are funding by the Suffolk Holiday Activity and Food initiative, designed to ensure kids have access to activity and lunches. It’s great to see physical activity being encouraged during the holidays. We know how important it is for children to get active, and this holiday programme is a wonderful way to promote fitness and activity.
Thank you to Terry Baxter, the CEO of Inspire Suffolk, for showing me the work being done at Inspire Suffolk today.
