It’s lovely to see a flurry of snow here in Derby at the start of 2022 – even though it didn’t last long.

Some of our supported children recently enjoyed a range of fantastic action-packed snow activities at Swadlincote Snowsports Centre, despite there being a distinct lack of snow at the time!

The specialist Snowsports Centre, based in Swadlincote, Derbyshire, offers a range of skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing and Sno-Tubing facilities with qualified instructors on hand to provide expert tuition all year round, whatever the weather.

And our supported young people had a fabulous day, enjoying a group introductory Snowboarding lesson, followed by Sno-tubing - where they boarded large inflatable rings to slide down the slopes and finally they enjoyed tobogganing down the Cresta Run – a 500 metre fun filled course full of twists and turns which drops an impressive 70 metres down the main slope.

  

  

We would like to thank everyone at Swadlincote Snowsports Centre for providing the children with such a memorable day out.

We would also like to say a special Thank You to the The Titan Children's Trust for your support with this activity day.

Passionate about supporting disadvantaged children across the East Midlands through sport and activities, the Titan Children's Trust kindly agreed to fund the Snowsports activity trip and also generously provided the use of their minibus for the day, which was greatly appreciated.

Our Activity Scheme is delivered by our Family Support and Mentoring Service team, who work hard to organise a series of diverse activities for our supported children to participate in during each school holiday.

These activity outings help to reduce social isolation, enabling the children to establish positive relationships with others and allowing them to participate in new, creative and sporting activities that they would otherwise be unable to experience.

We rely on fundraising and donations to help fund this scheme, so we are very grateful to everyone at the Titan Children's Trust for your continued support, Thank You.
