Free Fun & Food – A December to Remember launches
Nottingham Forest Community Trust (NFCT) is delighted to announce the highly anticipated Free Fun & Food programme will return this December. Free Fun & Food – A December to Remember will kick off on Monday 20th December and run for four action-packed days across the city.
The announcement comes on the back of a hugely successful summer, which saw the Trust partner with many local organisations to deliver 4 weeks of activities across 13 schools in the city. A total of 56,000 meals was supplied and just under 10,000 children attended during the holidays as they participated in a range of compelling and engaging activities.
This December, children can expect to take part in a variety of activities yet again which include, creative arts, basketball, drama, football, boxing, and new for this Christmas, children can absorb themselves in a unique virtual reality experience thanks to Immersive Experiences.
The Free Fun & Food programme is funded by Nottingham City Council (NCC) and the Department for Education (DfE) as part of the Government’s Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) provision. The programme provides enriching activities and healthy meals to children from families who could benefit from that bit of extra support over the holidays.
Without the support of local organisations, NFCT would not be able to deliver such a large-scale programme and the Trust is grateful to be able to yet again work with organisations such as Guru Nanak’s Mission, The Plough Pub at Wysall, The Pythian Club, Nottingham Playhouse, Freedom Foundation, Switch Up, Notts County Foundation, Jawaid Khaliq Boxing & Fitness plus many more!
The sessions will take place from Monday 20th December- Thursday 23rd December from 9am-3pm and will include activities throughout the day along with breakfast and lunch so the children will be full of energy!

- Highbank Primary School, Winscombe Mount, Clifton, Nottingham NG11 9FP
