Thousands of schoolchildren from some of the poorest homes in Newcastle are being given free meals and activities during the summer holidays.
The Best Summer Ever programme is being funded by Newcastle City Council to the tune of ￡1.1m.
About 70 different projects across Newcastle are taking part, offering a variety of activities, sporting events, arts and crafts, dance, performance and healthy eating.
It is estimated that across Newcastle 26,723 young people live in poverty, with 10,344 accessing free school meals.
Councillor Clare Penny-Evans, the council’s cabinet member for communities, said: “I hope everyone, from all communities and backgrounds, will really get on board and be a part of Newcastle’s Best Summer Ever and enjoy this fantastic opportunity.”
