We’re delighted to announce that Olympic medallist Kriss Akabusi MBE will be supporting our online Summer Camp.

Three-time Olympic medallist and TV personality Kriss Akabusi MBE will be supporting families across the country this summer by taking part in our online Summer Camp. 

The Summer Camp aims to help families support and entertain their children over the summer by providing daily pre-recorded events and activities for families to enjoy in the comfort of their own home.

Kriss, a Commonwealth Champion, rose to fame on the athletics track, breaking world records and winning medals.   The path to victory wasn’t always easy for Kriss and the challenges he faced as a young person have helped mould him into the successful, motivating and positive person he is today.

By sharing his inspirational story and promoting a positive mind set Kriss wants to help support children and young people across the country during this challenging time.

The pandemic has brought with it many challenges, not least the question of how we can best support our children’s mental health.  I hope that by joining us for the Summer Camp families will be able to gain support, learning and ultimately have fun together all while staying safe at home.

The free Summer Camp activities will be sent out on a daily basis and will include topics such as; education webinars, fitness classes, yoga workouts, mindfulness exercises, overcoming adversity, a winning attitude and preparation for returning to school.

Summer Camp has already begun so if you would like to join Kriss during the holidays please visit https://witherslackgroup.co.uk/summercamp/ to register and find out further details.  You can also email events@witherslackgroup.co.uk.
