A NEW scheme is giving children in Sleaford the chance to meet David Beckham.

Sainsbury’s Sleaford has announced that as part of their Active Kids scheme, customers are invited to collect vouchers and donate them to a local registered organisation of their choice. New active challenges will also give children the chance to win a place at a live challenge to meet the star.

Store manager Debbie Wrightson, said: “It’s important to help keep children enthused about all different kinds of activities – from play to sport – and we’re confident that Active Kids 2013 will help achieve this goal.”

Each week starts with four new challenges – Game, Skill, Food and David Beckham’s 1 Minute Challenge – to encourage children to lead healthier, more active lifestyles.

Organisations that complete all six weeks of the challenges get the chance to win places at the Active Kids Challenge Live.

To be in with a chance of attending the event, local organisations are urged to get as many children to take part in the four activities each week, which encourages children to tackle tasks such as target practice and bench steps.

Debbie added: “We really hope customers and colleagues get collecting for Active Kids 2013, so children from all over Sleaford can benefit from this fantastic scheme.”

Customers can collect Active Kids vouchers when they shop at Sainsbury’s until May 22 (exclusions apply).

Registered organisations, including schools, nurseries, scout and guide groups and sports clubs, can redeem Active Kids vouchers for a range of equipment and experiences to help get kids active.
