Join 60 Brent Families, getting Fit for FREE

Eight local community organisations, members of Young Brent Foundation, have joined together and offering FREE places to families with inactive 5 to 10-year-olds on the Fun Fit Families programme funded by Sport England and the National Lottery.

Families signing up to the 12-week programme, are fully supported to suit their needs and lifestyles and get FREE access to sports equipment, new ideas for fun and prizes.

Figures show that four out of five primary school children are not getting the recommended amount of daily exercise of 60 minutes a day, and are missing out on the enormous benefits it brings.

The initiative, supported by Sport England, works closely with parents as significant role models helping them to build confidence and help their children get more active with access to shared experiences that are enjoyable, convenient and FREE.

60 families have already signed up to FunFit Programmes operating in Harlesden, Kilburn Stonebridge, Sudbury Willesden Green, Barnhill and Dollis Hill. There are still places left so sign up for your FREE place today.

If this is for you, or someone you know, who you think would benefit from taking part, just get in touch on 0208 912 5839

Join a FunFit Families Programme today and spread the word!
