Using the power of sport, we have teamed up with Morrisons to offer school holiday support to families and children living in West Yorkshire through our healthy holidays programme, Crick-EAT.
Areas of Leeds and Bradford are home to some of the most in need, with almost 22% of children in Bradford and 21% of children in Leeds living below the poverty line. The average family is only ever one month away from needing financial support, and after the past 18 months Crick-EAT is needed more than ever.
Aligning to Marcus Rashford’s recommendations to Government, a typical day at Crick-EAT includes two hours of cricket delivered by qualified cricket coaches, a free lunch provided by Morrisons, and free toothbrushes and toothpaste kindly provided by Palmolive.
In 2021, we have worked with local schools and community organisations to deliver 12 Crick-EAT hubs across the summer holidays, delivering Monday to Friday for six weeks.
“Crick-EAT Summer Impact Report 2021.”:
In 2021, we distributed 14,696 meals during the Summer and October Half Term holidays.
