Palace for Life run Christmas Extravaganza for local children
After the success of both our Summer and October half term programmes, Palace for Life Foundation will again be running our Christmas Extravaganza at Heavers Farm Primary School, in the shadow of Selhurst Park, over the Christmas period to support local families.
The programme will be taking place from Monday 21st December to Wednesday 23rd December and after the success past programmes, we are now able to offer support to children in Year’s 7 and 8, as well as all Primary School year groups that we have had previously.
The three days will include a multi-sports programme, wellbeing workshops, festive arts and crafts and exciting activities from external partners including laser tag, dance and DJing. Delivered by our experienced coaches, the sessions will get children active and develop new skills and meet new friends. Social distancing and COVID guidelines have been put in place to ensure the sessions are a safe environment, with the safety of our participants at the forefront of our planning.
The Heavers Farm Primary School catering team will be providing all children attending with a healthy hot lunch and snacks throughout the day.
During the two previous holiday camps, we served 900 healthy lunches to children, as well as providing fruit and other healthy snacks. One parent commented: “My daughter is a very fussy eater, however, she ate every day at the club. She said the cook was very good and she enjoyed every meal, she ate things she would never eat at home!”
Our previous programmes this year have had over 150 children attend, and feedback has shown over 83% of children that attended having an improvement in their mental wellbeing, as well as 23% reporting an improvement in their attitude towards exercise and sport.
