At The Guide Liverpool, we’ve been helping businesses promote themselves and reach new clients and customers for years. Our professional video crew can help you increase engagement, interaction and revenue by presenting your business to a wide audience with a creative, exciting promotional video for use on multiple online channels.
Up to 6000 places are available in the huge programme of activities, which includes music, dance, drama, art, sport and cooking.
The scheme is being coordinated by education services provider Edsential – a community interest company owned by Wirral and Cheshire West & Chester Councils – and their local partner Neo Community. A nutritious meal will be provided each day to all those taking part in the holiday clubs.
The summer programme will be targeted at those who are eligible for free school meals and has been made possible thanks to an award of £800,000 from the Department for Education’s Holiday Activity Fund.
Families on a budget and who need to make their money go further are also being invited to take part in a ‘Summer Cooking on a Budget Challenge’ which will provide all the ingredients – and a sprinkling of cooking advice and encouragement – to prepare a range of balanced meals for all the whole family to enjoy.
All those taking part in the challenge will receive nutritional food packs containing all the ingredients and recipes needed to make meals together. They will also be encouraged to record and share a short video of their cooking efforts on social media for a chance to win some fantastic prizes.
The Summer Cooking on a Budget Challenge is expected to support up to 4000 local families and is part of package of support that has been made possible following an award of £1.153 million from the Department for Work and Pensions for an extension to Wirral’s Covid Local Support Grant. The extra money will also provide:
“Children and families have had a tough time since the start of the Pandemic, with many having to deal with continued disruption and added financial pressures. We know for many families big challenges remain.
“It is really good to know that thanks to this extra support many can now look forward to the summer holiday and knowing that their children will be among the thousands of local children and young people will benefit from these wonderful opportunities to have a go at new activities and meet new friends in a safe and fun environment.”
More information about summer holiday clubs in Wirral, including how to enrol, will be published on the Edsential website here and look out for more information about the Summer Cooking Challenge, which will be published shortly.
“We are, again, immensely proud to be part of this collaborative and creative approach to supporting communities over Wirral. This Summer will inspire families to cook together, inspire communities to work together and inspire people to support themselves and each other through difficult times. We hope this momentum and huge partnership will continue for a long time to come.”
