Wakefield Trinity Wildcats back Sainsbury's Active Kids Scheme

posted on 29 January 2015

Active Kids is back at Sainsbury's Trinity Walk.

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats Chairman, Michael Carter, player Lopini Paea and mascot Daddy Cool were at the store to kick start this year's launch. Customers can collect vouchers in store from 28th January - 5th May to help registered schools, groups and clubs across Wakefield receive active and cooking equipment, and experiences.

The scheme, which is celebrating its 10th birthday, is supported by double Paralympics gold medal winner Ellis Simmonds, world record breaking sprinted Jonnie Peacock and Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge. The three ambassadors are committed to encouraging children to eat well, move well and live well.

Wakefield Wildcats has joined forces with Sainsbury's at Trinity Walk to help promote the scheme with hopes to raise money.

Sean Higgins, Store Manager said, "The Active Kids scheme is a brilliant way for our colleagues to get involved with schools, groups and clubs in our local area. We love visiting local organisations and seeing the benefits the equipment and experiences have brought to the children."

Since 2005 the scheme has provided over £150million worth of equipment and experiences across the UK. This has given children the opportunity to have a go at activities like cooking, martial arts and dance.
