Running from April 3 - 13, the project will be open to everyone aged 5-21 years old, and is funded by the L&Q Foundation, who are providing a £377,000 grant to ensure activities are free and that there is no financial barrier for young people to get involved.

Included in the ativities are: boxing, street dance, laser tag, table tennis, arts and crafts and face painting.

L&Q’s One Goal is a sports and creative arts programme that encourages young people to be physically active, make healthy lifestyle choices and enjoy creative pursuits during the school holidays.

Matt Corbett, director of the L&Q Foundation, said: “The programme has been attracting record numbers of young people and we expect this spring to be as popular as ever.

“We are also very proud to be continuing our partnership with Kitchen Social, providing free school meals and tackling food poverty which is a great concern for many families during school holidays.

London Sadiq Khan said: “London is world-renowned for its sport and culture.

“As Mayor I’m committed to helping young people lead healthier, more active lifestyles, so I am really proud to see this successful partnership between some of the capital’s biggest football clubs and a valued housing partner continue for another year.

“I’m confident it will inspire even more young Londoners to get active and creative during the holidays.”
