This academic year Accrington Stanley Community Trust have teamed up with Ferrero to deliver Kinder Move and Learn to the local schools in the Hyndburn area which has kept our Community Sports Officer Josh very busy!

The six week programme is aimed at getting nine to ten year olds participating in sports but also to think about the importance of a balanced diet.

The session is split in to two 45 minute sections, one in the classroom learning about the impact of a balanced diet and the other is spent taking part in a sport. The sessions are kept fun and at a level that is designed to keep the children interested and to get them to interact with Josh and their class mates.

Josh Cooper, Community Sports Officer commented, ‘Its brilliant to see the change in some of the children’s mind sets as we go through the six weeks. The programme has been well received in the schools that we have been in so far and we hope that many more schools take up this opportunity in the future’.

The programme is free of charge to schools and has been running for a number of years. We have availability in the summer term so if your school is interested then get in contact with Josh on 01254 304071 or email for more information.
