Spring into Action Launches Inclusive Community Sports Club

7th March 2016 - posted by Lucy Hamlin

Spring into Action has announced that their Inclusive Community Sports Club will officially launch on Friday 8th April. The organisation has received a two year grant of £28,742 from 51 Community Interest Companies raising money to address health inequalities across England, Scotland and Wales through The Health Lottery, which has enabled them to set up inclusive sport and physical activity sessions for young people aged 11-17 and young adults aged 18-30, living in Hyndburn.

Director and Project Coordinator Lucy Hamlin, said: “We have previously run short sports projects in the area that have been well attended, but due to a lack of funding we have been unable to continue them. This funding enables us to run sports sessions for at least the next two years and will help us expand our work in the community, giving people with learning disabilities, their siblings and friends opportunities to get involved in sport and physical activity in a safe, fun environment.”

Spring into Sport will be based at Hyndburn Leisure Centre on Henry Street, Accrington and will provide a range of sport and physical activity at fortnightly sports sessions. The first sessions launch on Friday 8th April at 6.30pm and will cost £3 per person.

 Spring into Action are now looking for people to join the project, and request that they register their interest now. More information can be found by clicking here.
