Celerity Team Help Tackle Child Food Poverty With Colour Obstacle Rush

The Celerity team are taking part in the Newcastle Colour Obstacle Rush 2019 - a paint-filled 5km obstacle course on Saturday 15th June 2019. We are raising funds to help Flintshire County Council, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, Clwyd Alyn Housing Association and “Can Cook” with their ‘Share Your Lunch’ 2019 campaign.

Why are we raising funds?

It is a shocking statement to make, but there are families in Flintshire who are in food poverty. Food poverty is the inability to afford, or to have access to food that makes up a healthy diet. Children are going hungry because their parents cannot afford to buy food.

Share your Lunch’s summer campaign will help us to ensure that as many children as possible return to school well fed, engaged and ready to learn.

Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Dave Hughes, said:

Share Your Lunch proved to be a big success last summer, making a real difference to hundreds of people in our community. Children should not have to go hungry in this day and age. We aim to provide around 800 meals per day to play schemes throughout Flintshire, please come along and enjoy the fun and spirit of adventure!”

Robbie Davison of Can Cook who will be providing the meals over the six weeks is passionate about the project. He said:

Providing a fresh meal to children every day is essential to their health and wellbeing. We know that if children eat well, they play well and if they play well, they are happier. This year we will make sure every child who is part of the Share your Lunch programme receives a healthier, fresh meal - our aim is to provide meals that make children happy."

So please dig deep and help us to provide fresh and nutritious meals to the children of Flintshire this summer!

    Hi Everyone, We are so close to reaching our target of £250 - at £230 you have done an amazing job! I'm sure with some extra pestering and photos of us on the day, we can smash our target. The team are limbering up, digging out old sunglasses and dusting off the sweat bands.... and hoping for good weather tomorrow. Good luck to everyone taking part. Thanks
