Project Title: Healthier Futures
Award: £10,000

 

Using the exciting sport of sword fencing more than 1,800 primary school children will gain the confidence, knowledge and skills to get away from sedentary activities and into active sport. They will learn the benefits of a healthy heart and be encouraged to complete healthy lifestyle challenges as part of their skill development plan. Learning important balance and co-ordination skills at this age will raise aspirations and give them the confidence to pursue an active lifestyle beyond their school years.
