Vincent Brittain, Founder and CEO of inspire+ has declared the charity’s support to schools and young people during unprecedented times as the coronavirus outbreak develops. Following Governments announcement that schools were to remain open for key worker families and vulnerable children the charity held an emergency meeting to discuss ways that the inspire+ could assist throughout the upcoming weeks & possibly months.
Mr Brittain stated ‘I’m incredibly proud that the entire team have overwhelming affirmed their willingness to join the local effort in order to support key workers and vulnerable families. It is essential that children and young people keep active for both their health & wellbeing and we want to play our part in them achieving this’.
inspire+ will offer all schools weekly half day visits from staff to deliver physical activity sessions, sports coaching and mentoring sessions free of charge.
The charity is also devising virtual physical activity challenges, fitness videos & learning. inspire+ Ambassadors Adventurer Sarah Outen, Paralympian Sam Ruddock, Olympian Sophie Allen and World Gold winning high jumper Jonathan Broom Edwards themselves will set challenges and post motivational videos. All parents along with schools can access these free of charge by visiting the charity’s website www.inspireplus.org.uk or visit our social media pages by searching for either @inspireplus (Facebook) @inspire_plus (Instagram & Twitter).
In line with Government guidance, all Easter Holiday Sports Camps will be regrettably cancelled however staff will be redirected to support schools during this time
Mr Brittain concluded ‘Our mission is that young people are Healthy, Happy & Active and we aim to do this throughout these turbulent times’
