Holiday Club

When setting up Outbreak our heart was to serve the community of Pimlico in the best way possible. The first thing we did was to find out from local families what the biggest need was in the area and then establish the best way to accomplish that need. 

We discovered that child care over the holidays was desperately needed, so the team organised a holiday club, made up of skilled and willing volunteers, who were all DBS checked for safeguarding purposes.

At Outbreak, we are always looking to bring our professional youth work experience, expertise and energy to local schools in and around Pimlico in order to support school staff, young people and parents.

At Holiday Club there are...

Sports Activities

Football
Basketball
Boxing

Creative Arts

Dance
Drama
Music

Summer Holiday Club 2016 Review

During the summer of 2016, Outbreak ran their first ever summer Holiday Club. The club was running for a 2-week period and in those 2 weeks we experienced 25-30 children aged 7 – 11 years old come to the club each week. The club was run with over 20 volunteers who really impacted the lives of the children and helped provide various activities during the week.

The activities that were on offer were: football, basketball, boxing, dance, drama, singing, arts and craft, cooking and balloon shaping, we also did faith based activities that allowed all to participate. Over the weeks, we had great fun with all the children some had special needs such as ADHD, Autism, Downs Syndrome and Sensory Processing Disorder but all were treated equal and had equal access to all the activities.

It was a great success and down below are some of the testimonials of parents who had their child in the holiday club.

Thank you Mark and the Outbreak Team for the past 2 weeks. It has come in handy & Sanchaya has enjoyed it, thank you. Enjoy your rest.
