Chalvey Can – activity challenge winners announced!

A Chalvey family won £100 of Decathlon vouchers in our prize draw, just in time for Christmas!

Families across Chalvey have been participating in weekly family activity challenges, winning games and exercise equipment prizes. Multiple families signed up to the National Lottery Sport England funded Chalvey Can programme and qualified for the prize draw to win the Decathlon vouchers. Names went into a hat and the lucky winners were the Hussain family!

Jesaline Hussain and Alman Hussain collected their prize from Sarah Nicholls, Active Communities Behaviour Change Officer, just before Christmas.

Jesaline Hussain said “Thank you for this amazing prize, we took part in the challenge because all the family members were involved and could participate. For instance, my son and husband are playing table tennis and Frisbee on a daily basis. Similarly, I am spending 30 minutes doing basic exercise. Table tennis is something we have really loved and we will continue with in the future and I have enjoyed the programme so much I am hoping to volunteer as a buddy.”

Cllr Natasa Pantelic, cabinet member for health and wellbeing said: “Well done to the Hussain family for completing the Play Snap Win Family Challenge and winning this fantastic voucher in the prize draw! If you live in Chalvey it’s time to get involved in this exciting project, to get Chalvey families moving more together.

There is another family challenge to take part in, with prizes to be won so find out more on  www.slough.gov.uk/chalveycan .”
