Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust has been awarded £9,300 from ‘Awards for All’ to deliver a project called ‘Tackling Health with the Wildcats’.
‘Awards for All England’ is a simple small grants scheme which makes awards of between £300 and £10,000 and its programme aims to help improve local communities and the lives of people most in need.
To qualify for an award from the programme applicants have to ensure that their schemes ensure that people have better chances in life with better access to training and development to improve their life skills; create stronger communities with more active citizens working together to tackle their problems; improve rural and urban environments in which communities are better able to access and enjoy and create healthier and more active people and communities.
‘Tackling Health with the Wildcats’ will deliver healthy lifestyles assemblies to schools within Wakefield and District by using flash graphics and positive community role models while, in addition, the Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust will also deliver physical activity sessions and promote active lifestyles within the schools.
