High school pupils across the Fylde Coast are reaping the rewards of strong partnership links AFC Fylde Community Foundation is forging with local businesses.
The Community Foundation’s newly-formed collaboration with Rustlers, the number one micro-snacking brand from Kirkham based Kepak Convenience Foods, means dozens of teenagers are now enjoying free physical activity sessions taking place in their local high school settings.
The focus of the partnership between the Foundation and Rustlers is to help promote and support increased physical activity and exercise across the Fylde Coast.
Coaches from the Foundation have been visiting Lytham St Annes High School, Carr Hill High School and Pear Tree High School to provide weekly free community sports sessions ensuring all children, regardless of ability, are enjoying sports.
The physical activity programme enables the Foundation to deliver a wide variety of sports and interactive sessions that cater for individual needs.
Foundation Director Tom Hutton takes great pride in being able to extend the activity programmes into local high schools. He said: “Our free community sports sessions always receive tremendous feedback from those able to take part and enjoy them. To now be able to visit local high schools to deliver the sessions is a fantastic achievement for us. It’s an important age range for the Foundation to target and I’m delighted we can now work with these young adults.
“It is highly rewarding for all of us at the Foundation that the team at Rustlers recognise the importance of what we do as, without their support, these sessions simply would not be able to take place.”
