Summer Holiday Clubs

Background
share close

Holiday hunger is also a real problem for families who normally receive free school meals.

In some communities churches are running holiday clubs providing free activities for children, as well as breakfast on arrival and a two course lunch before the children go home.

Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton has been to the former pit mining village of Rowlands Gill to see one such project.

You might also find these websites helpful if you’re thinking of running a holiday club in your own community.
