Holiday Club for Kids

Working in partnership with Lancashire, Wyre and Lancaster Council, YMCA Fleetwood, YMCA Thornton & YMCA Lancaster are running a free holiday club programme for children on free school meals. Come and enjoy fun activities, healthy meals and more!

Funded by the Department for Education, the Holiday Activity and Food programme (HAF) provides free meals and fun activities for children and young people in Wyre who are eligible for benefits- related free school meals.

The sessions will include a variety of fun activities alongside a nutritious meal each day. They are a great opportunity for young people to get out and about, get active and meet new friends.
