EPIC's summer success

Zorbing, tag archery, soft archery, football and day trips out to Go Bounce trampolining centre, Kingswood mini golf and Bawtry Paintball were on offer among 167 activities on offer when EPIC got involved in the EXPECT Youth summer activity programme.

The six-weeks of wall-to-wall activities saw the team working with no less than 192 young people in Edlington over the summer period – a great example of how the Trust is helping to support communities by ensuring young people are engaged in positive activities and remain aspirational for their futures.

Several children and teenagers attended more than one session, meaning that in total 2,029 young people attended an EPIC summer event, at which the team provided 1,056 meals. .

EXPECT partners include Doncaster Council, Doncaster Culture and Leisure Trust, Active Fusion, Club Doncaster Foundation, Darts – community arts scheme, Flying Futures and Doncaster Chamber.
