Chris Ewing Karate has kindly donated a huge number of selection boxes which we will distribute to children at the Royal Hospital for Children & Young People (RHCYP). We are hoping that Santa might give us a wee hand, but he is pretty busy just now, so we will keep our fingers crossed.
There is also the possibility, next year, for Chris to run some karate sessions for CCLASP families. Karate is therapeutic – here is a quote from the CEK website “Karate is a fun and useful sport it can help children who have social or confidence issues and the kids are often required to support each other and build up team and club spirit. They will make new friends and might see a few familiar faces from their school classes as Chris works with all the Active Schools Co-ordinator’s in Edinburgh and the Lothian’s. Often Chris takes part in Lothian Health Weeks by giving taster sessions at many Primary Schools. The training sessions also provide a positive outlet for excess or built up energy. More importantly it is an excellent way for your child to increase their fitness and have fun while doing so.”
This would be great fun for all brothers and sisters – keep an eye out for news about this.
Thank you Chris and everyone in the karate club for their donation and support.
