MP praises Camp Inspire

Lee Rowley, MP for North East Derbyshire, recently visited Camp Inspire, the innovative programme delivered by Chesterfield FC Community Trust at Parkside Community School.

After taking a look at the activities organised to keep the attendees engaged, he said: “It was fantastic to visit Camp Inspire again and see the great work happening every day by those involved. 

“Having visited last year as well, it is brilliant to see Camp Inspire even bigger and better this year – and doing so much. 

“Thanks again for allowing me to come and meet with the inspiring leaders and young people!”

Camp Inspire was introduced last year to help children and young people, many of whom are disadvantaged or vulnerable.

Following the success of the inaugural programme, Camp Inspire returned on a larger scale this summer, with over 200 youngsters attending on a daily basis.

With funding from the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme, every child is provided with a free, hot, nutritious lunch.
