A group of 90 children have received a treat bag from Huntingdonshire Community Group’s Covid 19 Response Team, to kick start their summer holiday.
Thanks to funding from the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation, the Huntingdonshire Community Group’s Covid 19 Response Team has started their summer holiday programme for local children.
The group’s founder Councillor Patrick Kadewere said “The Covid-19 lockdown has been hard on us all, especially the children within our community.
“Not only have children been missing their schools and friends but many haven’t been able to go out during this period due to isolating or shielding family members.
“We would usually be starting our summer sports programmes now however we had to rethink our plans this year.
