Thanks to National Lottery Community Funding, we were able to carry out our free ‘This Girl Can’ after-school multi-activity clubs for young girls aged 11-18 in Cornwall.

We had to work within strict group guidelines from the start, which then came to an abrupt end in January 2021 for Lockdown 3.0. We pivoted the project and adapted budgets so we could continue delivery but on a 1-2-1 basis.

In total, we were able to facilitate 49 outdoor 1-2-1 sessions, 2 outdoor group sessions, and 3 indoor group sessions. Activities included fitness, dance, cycling, and yoga.

These sessions were a huge success, with feedback showing that participants had a reduction in anxiety and an increase in happiness. In addition, our participants were glad to meet new people, make new friends, and try new and exciting activities that they hadn’t done before.

We ended with an online Fitness-athon Sponsorship event on the 21st March where the girls and their supporters managed to raise a staggering £745 to help fund our ‘This Girl Club’ going forwards. Our celebration video below showcases our success and photos from the sessions:
