A KIDS’ club has been honoured for its work encouraging children to follow healthy lifestyles.

Ushaw Moor Kids Club received an Outstanding Energy Club Award from Sports Leaders UK.

The national group praised the club’s work in encouraging children to take part in physical activity, recruiting parent volunteers and running cooking workshops.

The club was established in Ushaw Moor, near Durham, a year ago this week.

Chairman John Booth said: “We are delighted to receive this award.

“The parents have a lot of fun and are as daft as the kids. It’s brilliant to see the kids interacting with the adults in a fun way.”

Emily Burns, from Sports Leaders UK, said: “Ushaw Moor Kids Club have had so much parent support which is great to see in a village.”
