Busy Bees in the Community
Busy Bees are proud to support the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust throughout 2012.
The charity helps give young people in need of support, a role model to look up to and be inspired by, someone to help them make the most of their talents and abilities.
The DKH Legacy Trust’s aim is to create life chances for young people who, through no fault of their own, fail to have the help or support they need to be the best that they can be. The DKH Legacy Trust offers world class sporting role models and the environment of sport to raise the aspirations of these young people.
The charity uses a team of Olympians, Paralympians, World, Commonwealth and European Champions to inspire young people, as they know what it takes to overcome adversity and to succeed.
The DKH Legacy Trust hold many campaigns throughout the year that help change young people’s lives, including ‘Unlocking Potential’ which supports young sports performers who are aiming to make the next step up in sport, ‘Aspiring Minds’, to help raise the educational and career aspirations of young people with severe learning and physical disabilities, and ‘Get on Track’, working in partnership with Haringey Council to support young people from a pupil referral unit in North London.
Busy Bees Nurseries across the UK will be raising money for the DKH Legacy Trust by holding a variety of activities throughout 2012, including the Golden Mile Challenge, an interactive fitness challenge that children can really get involved in. Every child attending Busy Bees nurseries will be challenged to complete 2, 4, 6 and eventually 8 miles of physical activity over the next year.
