Foundation 92 have kicked off the summer by teaming up with Schools and Organisations across Greater Manchester to come together and offer an action-packed range of fun activities, and healthy meals, for 7 to 16-year-olds this summer.
The activities, funded by The Department of Education’s Holiday Activity Fund, range from arts, crafts, sports and music and will run at various locations across Greater Manchester from Monday 26th July to Friday 24th. August.
Part of the National Campaign, this initiative is aimed to help keep young people in safe, fun and interactive environments during the long summer holidays. Young people will also receive a free healthy meal each day, supporting their growth and development.
Throughout summer 2021, Foundation 92 with thanks and support of, Salford Council, Trafford Council, Bury Council and Manchester City Council aim to provide over 600 free places per day, striving to deliver over 9400+ meals.
Head of Foundation 92 Tom Hutton said, “Communities across Greater Manchester have faced a great deal of adversity in the past twelve months and the upcoming Summer Holidays provide young people with an opportunity to meet new friends and have a great time in a safe and structured manner.
“Families do not always have access to disposable income and the school holidays are often a very expensive time of the year as parents try to occupy their youngsters. All our activities in this initiative are completely free. I’d like to thank all partners for making this possible and coming together to put on this fantastic offer for young people across Greater Manchester.
“Young people across Salford, Bury, Trafford and Manchester can look forward to time off school knowing they can have something fun to look forward to and the opportunity to take part in new experiences and make new friends.”
