LAST CHANCE TO APPLY to run activities this summer!

Our summer holiday activity and food programme is going to be bigger than ever this year and we’re looking for new providers!  You’ll have to be fast though as Applications close on Sunday!

Funded by the Department for Education, the programme offers a fantastic range of indoor and outdoor activities to school aged children who are eligible for benefit related school meals.

If you, or an organisation you know, could provide a fantastic activity for children and young people in the summer holidays please get in touch!  All places will be funded so it’s a fantastic opportunity to do something good for the children of Herefordshire and get paid.
