Doncaster Mumbler and Get Doncaster Moving  launch  ‘Family Active Challenge’

The February half term holidays are going to be full of fun and fitness this year with Doncaster Mumbler and Get Doncaster Moving. The team have created a free, action packed 'Family Active Challenge' at eight local woodlands and parks for families in Doncaster, to promote fitness and fun for all the family in an outdoor environment.

The 'Family Active Challenge' will be available for families to visit throughout the half term holidays from the 11th February until the 6th March at Sandall Park, Hexthorpe Park, Dunsville Quarry Park, Welfare Park, Stainforth, Thorne Memorial Park, Denaby Memorial Park, Cusworth Hall Park and Campsall Country Park.

The challenge will get the kids outdoors and keep them active and moving this February as well as considering what's happening this season and the challenges our wildlife face. With animal friends to meet and action challenges to complete along the way, this free challenge is ideal for families looking to keep the kids busy this half term.

Councillor Nigel Ball, Portfolio Holder for Public Health, Leisure, Culture and Planning, Doncaster Council commented:

"Get Doncaster Moving are pleased to partner with Doncaster Mumbler to offer children and families an opportunity to be active together and have some fun this February half term.

With eight locations across the borough to choose from, many people will also have the option to enjoy the trails close to home.

The 'Family Active Challenge' is a great way to keep the kids active and entertained this holiday, whilst enjoying some fresh air with friends and family at some of Doncaster's many beautiful green spaces."

As well as the original challenge trails at 8 locations across Doncaster, Caroline Brooks , owner of Doncaster Mumbler, has also created a free 'Family Active Challenge' pack that local schools, play groups and communities can access. Nurseries and community groups will be able to set up their own challenge trails in parks, woods and green spaces. Visit the Doncaster Mumbler website for details on how to set up your own 'Family Active Challenge' trail.

"Helping families in Doncaster has always been the primary goal at Doncaster Mumbler. As well as the main challenges across the 8 locations we wanted to create something that communities could access for free and set up themselves in parks and green spaces around the city. The 'Family Active Challenge' is available to anyone that wants to host a trail. We have put together some guidelines to help with the set-up and marketing of the trail.

Taking part in this challenge is fun and easy, you can download our 'Family Challenge Chart' from the Doncaster Mumbler website as well as the other winter themed games and activities to entertain the kids this half term" says Caroline.
