A Weston-super-Mare charity ran a multi-activity camp to get children out and active during the school holidays.

Around 25 youngsters attended the camp at Windwhistle Primary School, in Kingsley Road, and were able to try their hand at a number of different sports and games.

Archery, tennis, rugby and football were just a few of the activities children could enjoy.

The event was organised by XTND Improving Futures, a charity which aims to make a difference in the lives of families, and run by School Sports Teaching.

Laura Elmont, from XTND, said: “The day camp gets kids up and moving, develop key skills, have a run around, have some fun and work together in team activities.”
