Holiday activities provided by Wolves Foundation have been in full swing over the summer break, offering the city’s young people lots to do, along with some nutritious food.

The activities, delivered as part of Yo! Summer programme, have been funded by the City of Wolverhampton Council and the Department for Education Holiday and Food (HAF) programme. Activities including sports, indoor games, music, climbing, outdoors and cooking have taken place at The Way Youth Zone.

Children aged between 5 and 11 have been able to enjoy breakfast and lunch along with a varied programme of activities in between.

Ollie Locker, Food Project Manager with Wolves Foundation, said: “We are really pleased with how popular the sessions have proved this summer and it’s been great to be part of the Yo! holiday programme.

“The Way is a great venue for being able to offer a wide choice of activities – for example, the young people have had access to the climbing wall, with The Way’s staff leading, as well as the music studio where they could learn new instruments, make beats, record songs and generally just be creative.”

Councillor Beverley Momenabadi, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People said: “It’s been great to visit The Way and see first hand how much our children and young people are enjoying the events and activities that Wolves Foundation are providing here. 

“It’s so important that we can offer opportunities for children to have fun, keep active and eat for free at lots of venues. We know how difficult the summer holidays can be for many families at the best of times and particularly this year, we hope this has helped lessen some of the worries for parents this summer.”
