Grants for families

Family Fund is a UK-wide charity providing grants for essential items to families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children. The Department for Education has provided Family Fund with additional funding to support more families through the pandemic, and families are encouraged to apply for grants for items that can help their child.

Active Advent Calendar

Northamptonshire Sport are excited to inform you of our upcoming #NsportActiveAdvent, launching on Tuesday 1st December!

Available from Monday 30th November, we are inviting Schools, Families, Sports and Youth Clubs from all across Northamptonshire to download and take part in our Active Advent Calendar as we countdown to Christmas!

As part of our work to encourage children (and adults) to be active for 60 minutes a day, the Active Advent Calendar contains a whole range of different physical and creative challenges lasting between 30 seconds and 15 minutes. All of the activities are provided as a guide but can be adapted to suit the space and equipment available and number of people taking part.

There is also the chance to win a £100 Amazon Voucher in our Christmas Prize Draw. All you need to do is take a picture of you or your family completing one of the 24 Active Advent challenges and activities and share/post it to our Northamptonshire Sport Facebook or Twitter page or website using #NsportActiveAdvent
