During the February half term, Tranmere Rovers in the Community supplied over 250 food hampers and activity packs to local schools.
The 20 page activity pack consisted of fun challenges to keep pupils occupied and engaged during a half term in lockdown.
One of the challenges was a ‘House Hunt’ where pupils had to go round their houses and find 9 items, from something square to something you can roll. As an incentive we ran a competition for those who completed the challenge to send in a picture of the items they found and the winner would receive a Tranmere Rovers 2020/21 home shirt.
Austin Dickinson, 8, was the successful winner as he finding all nine items on the hunt.
Speaking to Austin about the activity pack he said:
“I enjoyed the activity pack a lot, the colouring in and house hunt I enjoyed the most.”
“The house hunt took me about 20 minutes to think of the items and to find them all, something square was the hardest thing to find but it felt good once I found them all”
We also spoke to Austin’s mum, Kathryn, who said:
“Tranmere Rovers make a huge difference and they bring lots of benefits to the local area. What they do and offer brings the community closer together and gives a sense of belonging. Their involvement encourages a healthier lifestyle and gets children more active and taking part”
“The activity pack provided Austin with a good variety of activities to keep his mind stimulated and his body active.”
“What Tranmere Rovers supplied to us and other families this half term help with keeping the children connected and engaged to the community, this is especially important at the moment with schools closed and other extracurricular clubs not running”
We would like to thank everyone who sent in their pictures and got involved with all our challenges and activities.
