Blackpool FC Community Trust delivered its three-day Fit2Go Festival this week at Bloomfield Road.

The festival saw 24 primary schools across Blackpool attend for fun games and activities. More than 1,150 Year 4 pupils participated in dodgeball, handball, circuit training and dancing.

The Trust also used this opportunity to launch the 21-day Gulp Challenge (Give Up Loving Pop) to promote healthy drink choices.

Fit2Go aims to encourage children to live a healthy lifestyle, take part in regular physical activity and join in with local sports clubs and community programmes, which will improve their overall health and wellbeing.

Stanley Primary School were among those in attendance and teacher Mrs Page said: “Our Year 4 children have really enjoyed it. They have participated in lots of games and activities that they would not normally have the opportunity to try in school. ”

A Trust spokesman said: “We are really proud of how the event went and thankful for all the schools that participated. The festival is the pinnacle of the Fit2Go year.

“The children had a fantastic time and the behaviour was exceptional, and a credit to their schools. It was great to see big smiles throughout.”
