During autumn half-term at the end of October 2023 a lot of Ukrainian children in York have been very active doing a great range of sports. All activities have been carefully planned and organised by Sports team at The University of York – York Sport! It took months of preparation and collaboration but it was all so worth it!

There were 4 days of activities for children and adults to participate in: 

  • Multi-Sport Day that involved football, cycling, tag-rugby and badminton for mums;
  • Learn to Ride session;
  • Swimming lessons every day;
  • Free swim passes for teenagers and their carers.
It’s been absolutely incredible! Children had so much fun! All activities took place in brilliant sport facilities at the campus of The University of York. The Sports team has not only organised a lot of coaches to facilitate the sessions for kids, but also equipment and even some spare uniform and coats to take home.
It was simply wonderful for children and their parents to enjoy these informal activities and spend some quality time together during half-term! We are so grateful to York Sport team, and particularly to Keith, Adela, Richard and Alex, for putting their heart into all these sessions.
We will be back, if you’ll have us! 💙🌻💛
