Accrington Stanley Community Trust have secured £10,000 of funding from the Big Lottery Funds Awards 4 All programme to deliver a free healthy lifestyles after school programme in Hyndburn.

The programme will see over 500 children take part in a 6 week extracurricular health initiative focusing on nutrition, exercise, diet and raising the awareness of living a healthy lifestyle.

As well as the 6 week after school programme we plan to invite a number of children and their families to Accrington Stanley’s Football Stadium to take part in extra activities on a match day.

Lee Walsh, Head of Sport at the Trust said ‘We are delighted to be launching this brand new programme with the support of the Big Lottery Fund. A number of schools in Hyndburn will benefit from this programme as we look to build a greater awareness of living a healthy lifestyle with specialist extra-curricular sessions’.
