Digital Champions gets kids active

Digital Champions, a project to get kids physically active and having fun online was a big hit in Hunslet last summer.

A series of sporting and digital activities took place to encourage children to live healthy lives and improve their internet skills.

Over 40 children got in involved in Digital Champions which was run by Leeds Fed in partnership with the Livewell Project and the coaching team from Leeds, Let’s Get Active.

A kids and parents tug of war, a football tournament and a weightlifting contest took place at Jack Lane and Arthington Avenue Park in Hunslet. Our HUGO bus equipped with free wifi and laptop computers was on hand to help youngsters and their parents get online.
A special ‘winners and champions’ event was held at Hunslet Warriors Rugby Club to celebrate the achievements of the children who took part.

Digital Champions enabled us to connect with our younger residents and their families and signpost them to further training opportunities and support Leeds Fed offers. It was so successful that the project was repeated this Summer.
