It was another successful week for Moors in the Community as their May Holiday Camps at Spennymoor Youth & Community Centre proved a huge hit with youngsters.
Over 150 children joined the sold-out Holiday Camps across three days last week as Moors in the Community once again stepped up to provide hours of great entertainment.
The young people were able to complete in their very own Mini Olympics, as well as take on some of our Spennymoor Town Ladies players and Manager Billy Shackleton in a football tournament!
Perhaps the highlight for the youngsters was when First Team Assistant Manager Lewis Dickman called in to enjoy a pretty lively session of dodgeball which proved to be a lot of fun too.
The Club’s Holiday Camps were kindly supported by headline sponsors, Esh Group Construction, while we were also grateful to McDonald’s for providing Happy Meals for the children who attended the Friday session.
“The Holiday Camps have gone from strength to strength over the past year and last week was our best yet,” said Luke Cowie, the Club’s Community Development Manager.
“We had such a strong turnout and the fact we sold out across all three days tells me we are doing something right – now the challenge is to keep on improving for when the next ones come around!
“I would like to offer a massive thank you to Esh Group Construction for their incredible ongoing backing, without which we wouldn’t be able to deliver these Holiday Camps which are proving so beneficial to so many local young people.”
Dickman was thrilled to have been invited along to join in and admitted that it’s something he and the players would like to do more often during the coming months.
“This is a brilliant way for me, the staff and the squad to really connect with the local community,” he commented.
“You could see how much fun the children were having on the Holiday Camps and it was a real pleasure to be there and get involved.
“This Club really is at the heart of the town and some of the work that Moors in the Community is doing really is having a massive impact across the whole area now.
“I am really looking forward to the next one but hopefully I can get a few more of the First Team players down to help me out on the dodgeball!”
Look out for details of Moors in the Community’s summer programme when they will be looking to host a whopping three weeks of activities for youngsters!
