Westminster City Council is getting behind the new Change4Life campaign to help make sure children have plenty of active fun this summer!
You may already have heard that Change4Life and Disney are launching this exciting new campaign next month, encouraging families to get more active with 2019’s 10 Minute Shake Up programme. It aims to get children active for 60 minutes a day, with 10 minute bursts of active fun inspired by their favourite Disney characters.
Free campaign resources
Change4Life has created some fantastic resources to help organisations to promote the campaign and keep children moving! The free 10 Minute Shake Up campaign resources include event kits, posters, and Shake Up games packs for children. Order your free resources here.
Grants of up to £1,000 are available to support organisations that work with children and families in Kensington and Chelsea to run activities that link to the 10 Minute Shake Up campaign and help children have a healthy, active summer. To request an application form and further details please email firstname.lastname@example.org
