A message from HomeStart Craven …
Since the charity started in 2010, we’ve offered both practical and emotional support to hundreds of families throughout Craven through our volunteer home visiting service. During 2020, we supported more families than ever before.
At a time when Covid-19 had brought about unprecedented changes to the lives of almost every family in Craven, we sought to create opportunities to meet the challenges they faced and help them continue with some of the activities they may not otherwise have been able to access.
Aware that both physical health and mental well-being are crucial factors in a family’s ability to cope with change in a positive way, we were sure that keeping children active and maintaining connections with family members and community groups was paramount.
And so the Six Week Sunday Sportathon was established! Funding was secured from a variety of sources, including Sport England, The Pixel Fund, Magdalan and local businesses and the aims of our project were simple … families would come together in a non-judgemental environment to play, learn new skills, make new friends and have FUN! We knew this fit with the ethos of Skipton Tennis Centre and we were confident that the coaches could deliver a safe, varied and fun programme for 3-5 year olds, many of whom would not have joined in without our support.
To date, we’ve offered 176 parent-and-child places on the six week Sunday morning blocks, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and we are delighted to be able to continue our project for the whole of the 2022-2023 academic year.
Come along and join us – ALL 3-5 year olds living in Craven are welcome; all they need to bring is lots of enthusiasm, big smiles … and a grown up!
