Wild fox in Foxhole

Young people from Foxhole kick-started a healthy lifestyle around the campfire thanks to a £2,000 donation from Sanctuary Housing to Play Torbay.

Nearly 600 children attended the Foxhole Wild Fox Adventure Play sessions and enjoyed cooking healthy food on a campfire. They also learned about local nature and how to safely build a fire.

In addition, children took part in building classes and learnt how to use tools safely under the supervision of qualified staff. Some of the children built an exciting mini amphitheatre around the campfire.

Alison Kenny, Sanctuary’s head of neighbourhood partnerships, said: “We are committed to investing in community projects which address the needs of our residents and this project is a great example of that.

“The young people who went along to the Wild Fox sessions had great fun as well as having the opportunity to make new friends in a positive environment. We look forward to working with Play Torbay on more new and exciting projects in the coming year.”

Jemma Collins, from Play Torbay, added: “It’s great that children attending sessions at Wild Fox experience a huge range of activities including building skills and bug hunts, as well as socialising, learning how to make fires safely, make friends, and being independent in a space they can call their own.”

This project was funded by Sanctuary Group’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
