ASDA'S SPORTING CHANCE SCHEME OFFERS A RECORD NUMBER OF FREE SPORTS SESSIONS TO FAMILIES
Families across the UK will benefit from a record number of free sports sessions this February and throughout the school holidays this year, thanks to Asda’s Sporting Chance initiative.
Now in its fourth successive year, Sporting Chance gives youngsters across the UK access to over 100,000 free sporting sessions throughout the school holidays. From February 5th in Scotland and February 12th in England, the initiative aims to get kids trading in the sofa for sports such as football, hockey and even dodgeball.
Over 89,000 families used the scheme in 2010 and each session is completely free and is designed to help parents keep children both entertained and active during the holidays.
Simply pick up a voucher from your nearest Asda store (no purchase necessary!) and enter your postcode on www.asda.com/freeactivities to find local sporting venues taking part.
Fiona Campbell Reilly, Head of Asda in the Community, says: “We’re aiming to make Sporting Chance’s fourth year the best yet and that means making sport affordable and accessible to families. We want to encourage more families to take advantage of the free sessions available in their local area and encourage local sports providers to get in touch if they want to join the scheme.”
