Providing children with free sports provision, meals and festive gifts

Supported by the Premier League and Barclays, Nottingham Forest  Community Trust are running Premier League Kicks holiday camps over the Christmas holidays.

Nottingham Forest Community Trust will be one of 75 professional football club community organisations to run free Premier League Kicks holiday camps during the Christmas holidays that supports young people in Nottingham.

Between Monday 21st and Thursday 31st December in partnership with the Brendon Lawrence Sports Centre, the Community Trust will be supporting children and giving them the chance to take part in a range of different activities including, football, dance and basketball.

As well as the free activities we have teamed up with Tesco and a local pub to provide each child with a hot meal and a range of other food and drink options. They will also each take home a Premier League goodie bag filled with Christmas presents including a Premier League football and more donated gifts from Tesco.

Working together with these amazing organisations has allowed us to engage and support local children who need it the most during the festive period.

Programmes Manager at Nottingham Forest Community Trust, Declan Barker, said: “We are delighted to be able to run these Premier League and Barclays-backed camps over the festive period.

“After the success of the ‘Holiday Hunger’ campaign we ran during the summer which provided children with free sports provision and healthy meals, we are excited to be able to provide more support for those children that need it the most during the festive break. The support and items provided by our partners including the Premier League, Barclays and Tesco, have be staggering and we cannot thank them enough.”

“The camps will give children a great chance to socialise safely, stay active and receive essential free meals and Christmas gifts that lift their spirits during the holidays.”

Marcus Rashford MBE is an ambassador for the activity, which will support more than 4,500 young people following the break-up of schools for the holidays and the start of the Christmas period.

Richard Masters, Premier League Chief Executive, said: “The importance of clubs within their communities has been more evident than ever this year. There has been a significant commitment to helping vulnerable groups within society, when they need our help the most.

“The Premier League Kicks Holiday Camps will build upon the brilliant community work that clubs continue to deliver year-round.

“Thank you to Barclays for their partnership on this vital activity for young people and to Marcus Rashford for being an ambassador; once again making a positive difference to support others. We hope that those taking part in the Premier League Kicks Holiday Camps enjoy themselves this Christmas.”
