Specialist child exploitation charity Safe and Sound has supported more than 100 young people and families over the summer, with help from fellow Marketing Derby Bondholders Butler’s Pantry and QUAD.

As part of the charity’s Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme, around 1,800 meals, including those prepared by professional chefs at Butler’s Pantry, in Burnaston, have been delivered to families over the past six weeks.

Meanwhile, young people enjoyed an array of activities, including a private cinema screening at QUAD, fishing, boxing, BMX and basketball coaching sessions, days out to visitor attractions and the opportunity to learn practical skills such as woodwork and bath bombs.

The HAF programme is part of Safe and Sound’s grassroots work to support local children and young people who have been victims of exploitation or who are at risk of becoming exploited.

Tracy Harrison, chief executive of Safe and Sound, said: “This was our most ambitious HAF programme to date and the feedback from the young people we support, and their families, has been incredible.

“We are now planning our October holiday activities and Christmas HAF programmes, which will give everyone something to look forward to as we enter the autumn and be a fitting end to our busy 20th anniversary year.”
