Volunteers needed for Holiday Activities and Food Programme.
As a District we have been asked to help run scout activity day events over the 4 weeks of summer from 10am to 2pm for young people in receipt of free school meals and we're looking for anyone who would like to also come along and support with the delivery. The events will run on Mondays and Thursdays at Stevenage District HQ at the Poplars SG2 9QQ
The program is written and sorted and the Risk Assessments are done, so, all you will need to do is the fun bits. You will be part of the vital work that is confronting the growing issues of hunger, isolation, physical inactivity and educational attainment experienced by young people from low income families during the school holidays.

If you're up for some fun and adventure this summer please let me know when you would be able to help us out via https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/e84ff872261b4cea98d996e5472f896d even if you can sign up for a couple of hours each day that would be great.
We are looking for some help to run activities and to help cook the lunches, there will be up to 30 children daily and as you know, many hands make light work (and creates fun too).
This amazing scheme can’t run without help but if you have any questions, then just contact me on the details below and I will of course answer you.
