Kids Having Fun

Buckinghamshire council, local organisations and charity groups, have teamed up to provide a summer of fun for children and young people aged 5 to 16 who receive benefits-related free school meals.

Part of the Government's £220 million national Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF), children can take part in a range of activities from dance, music, sport and art to photography, kayaking and fitness training. Each activity session includes a tasty hot meal and the chance for youngsters to hang out and make new friends.
