Children who keep a fit and active lifestyle during their childhood, are more likely to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle as adults. As a mother to 4 children I want to give them the best chance in life, setting them on the right road, teaching them not only what is right and wrong but also how to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Now this you can do in many different ways, but what better opportunity is there than doing it with Kallikids Sponsored Child -a full year of free activities.
KalliKids offers parents a central on-line place to find and recommend their favourite clubs, classes, places to go, tutors and services. The company is based in Brighton, UK and through speaking directly to parents and checking qualifications and documentation they produce accurate recommendations that are informative for parents across the UK. And this year, for their second year running they are giving 80 lucky kids to become a KalliKids Sponsored Child, which is an annual programme. They are inviting children all over the UK to apply for this too good to miss opportunity, to win one year of classes in sport, music, drama or dance lesson.
This is about inspiring children and giving them the chance to join in and get active. If you are one of the lucky ones to win a sponsored place, you will be given the opportunity to take part in one of a range of activities for free for a whole year.
Places are available for children from 6 weeks up to 18 years. Fun activities from swimming, football and martial arts classes to extra tuition, yoga and life coaching.
A sponsored child's parent from last year wrote:
Flossie’s mum, Sarah Scott, applied for the place as she couldn’t afford to pay for lessons herself.
“Sponsored Child is simply amazing. Flossie has got so much out of it. Flossie suffers from
a rare genetic disorder called Acrodermatitis Enteropathica. Without twice daily medication the condition would be fatal. She also has a severe vitamin D deficiency.
“Swimming had always been her favourite activity but I could never afford to pay for lessons. It was great when she was chosen and she deserved a treat with everything she goes through with her health issues. The scheme has benefited her so much.”
Applications close on the 20th February, don't miss out and get applying ASAP.
You can apply for your child's 2015 place.
Winners will be announced at the end of March.
