We had to deliver a little differently during the Covid-19 outbreak. during the lockdown we delivered food package to our families and posted "what to do today activities" online each day. Once the summer started we held two 1.30 hour art sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays and had sport sessions on Wednesday and Friday. Sessions had to be booked online in advance to allow us to limit numbers.

This summer we cooked, learnt new sports, created lots of art work and worked in the garden we also ran a skate-school every week.
Some of the children and young people went wall climbing. They had a great time.
They were a pleasure to take out: enthusiastic and happy taking part in a challenging physical activity.
Rupa Huq Visit
Our MP, Rupa Huq, visited on Tuesday 6th August.
“I was delighted to visit APPLE who do so much for young people in Acton and have done so for many years on many front: encouraging sociability, camaraderie, physical fitness, creative arts and culinary skills. With 400,000 Londoners living in food insecurity they are also doing lots to combat holiday hunger as every kid attending will leave with wholesome, nutritious fresh food in them. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to any funder as a worthy cause that turns no child away.”
