“We are extremely grateful to the Violence Reduction Unit, Doncaster Children's Trust, Doncaster Council and Thorne and Moorends Town Council in supporting our charity in making a real difference in Doncaster.”

Each camp will be run by qualified Active Fusion coaches, who will incorporate timely Halloween-themed games and activities into their delivery during the days.

Rebecca Mason, Head of Partnership & Engagement at Doncaster Council, said: “We are committed to helping organisations and charities like Active Fusion create opportunities for children and young people to lead a healthy, active lifestyle both in and out of school. The holiday camps are a great way for children to have fun in a safe and secure environment which otherwise would not be available to them."

Camps will run from October 26 to 30 between 9am and 3pm. activefusion.org.uk
