Our Journey

It's a Nook Out!
It's a Nook Out! joined Voluntary Action LeicesterShire1 day ago

Last year we ran our first "Its a Nook Out" day. Teams of local Residents challenged each other over a variety of Inflatable Obstacles, playing old fashioned games like Human Hungry Hippos and Dear Liza while entertaining the crowds with water fights and cheeky challenges. We provided refreshments, stalls and family activities. Our main purpose was to raise money for our chosen charity "Keenan's Fund" (a small charity established to purchase a holiday home for families to use, who have children with life limiting diseases). This year we want to do the same again, providing an action packed family fun day for our community and raise even more money for our chosen charity.

Get Cycling Leicester
Get Cycling Leicester joined Voluntary Action LeicesterShire1 week ago

Community Summit would like to set up bicycle hubs so people can hire bicycles at a reasonable cost so that bicycle rides will be organised regularly. Community Summit delivered a 6 week pilot project in collaboration with the unit for Diversity Inclusion and Community Engagement from the Leicester University in October 2016. The project was aimed at encouraging ladies from ethnic minorities to learn how to ride a bicycle safely and to encourage them to ride regularly to foster community cohesion while enjoying a healthy activity. 60 ladies attended and requests for more sessions was immense. We are currently delivering a "learn to ride" sessions using a grant from Sports England and the first course of 30 participants was fully subscribed. We aim to deliver the "Get Cycling Highfields" sessions to 100 individuals, both male and female. Participants state that they either can not afford to purchase a bicycle to use regularly or they lack a place to store a bicycle.

SWS Tag Archery
SWS Tag Archery joined Voluntary Action LeicesterShire2 weeks ago

Our SWS Tag Archery arrows have a large soft foam, the arrow offers the same flight characteristics of a standard arrow yet is much safer. This allows us to shoot arrows virtually anywhere. With the large foam tip kids can now shoot our pop out targets, take aim at opponents or just slam-dunk basketball style. Additionally, it is a great way to get kids involved with archery as well as providing a fun activity that enhances eye-hand coordination, increases upper body strength, and helps to develop self-discipline.
