CHAMP (Confident, Healthy, Active, Motivated, Positive) is a 10-week family healthy lifestyles programme funded by East Lancashire CCG.
Aimed at families with children aged 7-11, and delivered at The Leisure Box in Brierfield, the weekly sessions consist of 45 minutes of healthy lifestyle education followed by 45 minutes of playing a different sport each week.
The education sessions cover topics such as the food groups and preparing healthy lunchboxes, while the physical activity sessions allow kids to try new sports such as dodgeball, handball and shuffle ball in a safe space with like-minded children.
Here’s some of the feedback we’ve received so far…
“The CHAMP programme was very enjoyable and made all of us as a family enjoy fitness activities. We met lots of fabulous people and loved getting a chance to try new things.”
“I really liked playing football and especially loved the climbing walls at The Leisure Box. I even managed to do the Leap of Faith even though I was very scared!”
“Thanks again for the last 10 weeks. It was clear that the course brought several families together and forged friendships, which had a lot to do with how BFCitC ran the course. As a family we looked forward to the sessions despite the tight logistics of getting there and have been disappointed when we’ve had to miss one.”
“Thank you so much to Charlotte for letting me and all my children join the 10-week CHAMP family programme, it’s been amazing. We hope to see you and everyone else in the near future.”
“Thanks for making Thursday evenings great!”
