National Lottery awards us £10,000
We are delighted to announce that our very own charity, Stafford Rangers in the Community, has been awarded a magnificent £10,000 National Lottery grant to run a series of sports camps during school holidays, providing food and free activities for families who are struggling due to the cost-of-living crisis.
The camps, for children aged 6-16, will provide a range of sports including football, dodgeball, mini cricket, physical literacy programmes and day trips out. They will also provide children with a meal at lunchtime. The sports camps are designed to Improve the health and well-being of children, help them make new friends and prevent boredom and anti-social behaviour.
Stafford Rangers in the Community chairman John Macmillan, thanked the charity’s Community Engagement Officer Andy Turner for all his hard work for the charity to date and in particular in securing this grant, and said:
“The camps, which will be run by qualified coaches, will be free for everyone. Many of the families we will be supporting are struggling in the cost-of-living crisis, and providing a meal for the children will ease some of the additional financial strains of the school holidays”.
In addition, the grant will enable the charity to hold community get together days, open to all members of the public, and run by members of staff who live in the local community and volunteers. Further details of these will be announced in due course.
