Thomas Franks and Westholme School are partaking in a government initiative named the Holiday Action Fund (HAF) in partnership with Blackburn Council and Spring North, a local charity.

The grant enabled Spring North to organise activities and food for almost 2000 children within the area each day over August.

Westholme and Thomas Franks are supplying 15,000 meals to Newground Together, Blackburn Rovers Community Trust, IMO Charity and Blackburn Youth Zone in conjunction with the Holiday Action Fund provided by the government.

This initiative will provide crucial necessities for families in the area and allow children to reconnect with their friends in a safe environment whilst enjoying a range of activities and a hot meal.
