The Kaleidoscope Plus Group successfully hosted its 2nd Sandwell Holiday Lunch Club at our Head Office last week, proving a massive hit with both parents and children.
Activities on the day included a fun sports day at Lewisham Park which encouraged teamwork and fitness and an engaging cooking class aimed at educating parents on how to prepare healthy and affordable meals for their children.
The programme, which is funded by the National Charity Partnership of Tesco, the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK was facilitated by Wellbeing Service Co-ordinator, Dave Pickard who believes the programme will continue to flourish as all attendees found it very useful.
He said: “Both the children and the mums really enjoyed the Sandwell Holiday Lunch Club as it was a perfect combination of fun, food and fitness during the school holidays.
“The club allowed the children to get some good exercise during the holidays but more importantly showed mums how to cook tasty new recipes to ensure their children are getting a well-balanced and nutritious diet.
“I think everyone who came along found it very worthwhile and best of all they left with a freshly cooked lunch!”
