Activity packs will be distributed to children at Key Stage 1 & 2 levels, as well as to teenagers, and adults who are vulnerable and lonely, in an effort to increase individual engagement and interaction levels.
The Club and Foundation have committed to help support a variety of local fundraising initiatives including those being run by the Lister Hospital, Stevenage Borough Council and local food banks.
The Club helped inject a new spirit into the community during the last lockdown and were privileged to receive a Pride of Stevenage Award for its efforts. It’s our intention to make sure this community role is continued during times of need.
