Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) Programme

The Maidstone Leisure Trust have been working with a number of partners to ensure the successful delivery of the Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) Programme. HAF provides opportunities for children who are eligible for free school meals to take part in activities at Maidstone Leisure Centre and includes a free hot meal.

The overall programme has been a partnership between the local leisure trusts; Maidstone Leisure Trust, Swale Community Leisure (SLC), Tenterden Leisure Centre Trust and the Meopham Sports & Leisure Association and our operator, Serco Leisure

Following successful delivery during the Summer and Christmas holidays in 2021 and Easter 2022, the HAF programme will be running for Summer and Christmas 2022 at Maidstone Leisure Centre, alongside the other relvant locations associated to the trusts.

Locations;

Maidstone Leisure Centre, Swallows Leisure Centre, Sheppey Leisure Complex, Hermitage Park Community Centre, Tenterden Leisure Centre and Meopham Leisure Centre.

At Easter, we were thrilled to fund Easter Eggs for the children – Clive attended to present these to the children.

“Well done, it has once again been a brilliant project and I was privileged to be invited along to present Easter eggs to the young people who I met on one of the days. My thanks to everyone involved and on behalf of the Leisure Trust, I look forward to this very worthwhile project continuing and building on it’s success.

I also have say that it was very moving to see the smiling faces and gratitude displayed by many of the youngsters when the Easter eggs were handed out.”
