Skip for Sowenna

Skip for Sowenna

Between February and July 2020, we are encouraging primary schools across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to get involved in our new campaign, Skip for Sowenna.

We recognise how important physical activity is to mental wellbeing. It is also proven to impact positively on symptoms of depression and other mental illnesses. Research shows that being active can reduce the risk of depression by up to 30%; it can also reduce anxiety and stress, combat low mood and increase self-esteem.

That’s why with Skip for Sowenna we want to promote fun, inclusive activities by getting primary schools to organise their own Skip for Sowenna event wherever and whenever they like; whether it’s first thing on a morning or during lunchtime.

And why not make it a fundraising event? Any money raised will go towards sport equipment and activities for the young people staying at Sowenna – we’d suggest a donation of £1 per participant.

If you’re interested, find out more in our Skip for Sowenna Information Pack.

You can also sign up today with the Registration Form.
