Autumn Sports and Inclusion Camps Deemed A Great Success

Blackpool FC Community Trust successfully delivered three different Holiday Sports Camps and an Inclusion Sports Camp last week.

Over 300 children attended our Sports Camps and Inclusion Camp over the five days it was run. Sports Camps took place at Norbreck Primary Academy, Marton Primary Academy and Unity Academy, whilst the Inclusion Camp was delivered at St Joseph’s Church Hall.

Senior Health and Education Officer Marc Joseph, was delighted with the fantastic turn-out from children all over Blackpool. “We had over 300 children from all over the Fylde Coast attend our Camps over the week. A lot of the children were familiar faces from previous Sports Camps but we also had new faces attending. We deliver fun, safe and exciting activities all day. It was a fantastic week and the children were smiling throughout – which was brilliant to see.”

Senior Community Involvement Officer, Michael Brown was one of many Blackpool FC Community Trust staff to deliver the Inclusion Camp. Michael praised the Inclusion Camp, which was for children with disabilities. Michael said, “It’s been a great week. We’ve had over 40 children who suffer from different disabilities, and they’ve all got involved with every activity. I encourage any parents, who have children with disabilities to contact us and find out about the fantastic Inclusion Camp we deliver during half-terms.”

The children at Holiday Sports Camps were also treated to surprise appearances from four Blackpool FC players, with Myles Boney and Sam Slocombe visiting Norbreck Primary Academy, whilst Kelvin Mellor and Colin Daniels attended the Marton Primary Academy Holiday Sport Camp.
