Sainsbury's have asked me a very simple question to answer;
"Have I got an 'Active Kid'?"
Without a shadow of a doubt, the answer is 'YES!'
The Boy is never happier than when he's climbing a tree, scooting around, rolling down a hill, cycling across the barrage, running with a kite along the beach, playing Tag with his friends, or generally exploring in the great outdoors.
I'm very lucky that he loves being so active, and it's enjoyment in physical activity is something that I've always been keen to instill in him as I wasn't encouraged to be very active as a child and am now quite sloth-like in my own fitness. Over the past few years there have been many studies about emotional wellbeing and children's connection to the great outdoors, and a lack of physical activity is a natural connection to make.
Quite simply, the more active children are, the healthier and happier they will be.
I've been asked by Sainsbury's to share their 2015 Active Kids campaign where organisations can collect vouchers in order to exchange them for equipment.
Collect vouchers from 28th January until 5th May 2015 at all Sainsbury’s stores, petrol stations and when ordering groceries online for your local school or group. The more vouchers they receive, the more equipment and experiences they'll be able to get. One voucher is earned for every £10 spent in a single transaction at Sainsbury’s Supermarkets, and one is earned for every £5 spent in a single transaction at Sainsbury’s Locals.
To celebrate the return of Active Kids, I’m offering £200 of Sainsbury’s vouchers, as well as signed merchandise, to one lucky winner. The giveaway will run until 12am on Saturday 11th April 2015.
You can increase your chances of winning, by earning extra entries in these ways:
- Tweeting about the giveaway
- Submitting a Tweet or Facebook link showing a picture of your vouchers
Just follow the instructions on the widget below. Good luck!
I have received vouchers and equipment as compensation for sharing this competition, my experiences are honest and unbiased.
