Day two of the Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation advent calendar sees us look back on our Tackling Hunger camps which have supported families throughout the year.
As 2021 brought fresh optimism and renewed hope, the Foundation partnered up with Morrisons’ Community Champions to continue the support of families as the country re-opened its doors.
Throughout the spring and autumn half-terms as well as the Easter and Summer holidays, Crigglestone All Blacks continued to be the base for our Tackling Hunger camps.
Working with children predominantly on free school meals, the camps were filled with multi-sport activities and run by our experienced staff.
On top of this and with the help of Morrisons, the young people were also treated to a free packed lunch to fuel them for the rest of the day.
Reflecting on a successful year for our Tackling Hunger activity camps, Head of Health, Wellbeing & Inclusion, Colan Leung, was proud to head up such a project.
“I am delighted with how our Tackling Hunger camps have performed over the last 12 months.”
“To have supported 60+ participants over 2021 is an outstanding achievement and something we aim to continue over the coming year.
“I also want to thank Morrisons for all their support with this project. They have been incredible, feeding the children of the district in a time where helping one another is at the utmost importance.”
While Morrisons’ Beverley Kelly, who delivered the free school meals, followed, “Keeping children provided with a free school meal throughout the holidays is paramount when it comes to child hunger.
“Whilst working with the Foundation, we have been able to support around 30 children and their families, which is a great feeling.”
