County Duo Help Kids Get Active

13 February 2013

Fabian Spiess and Haydn Hollis have been encouraging children to stay active, as part of their work with the A Game of Two Halves scheme.

The duo, pictured, recently stopped off at the James Peacock Infant School in Ruddington to speak about the benefits of eating healthily and exercising regularly. 

A Game of Two Halves gets this message across to five to 11-year-olds with a 50:50 approach to fitness and nutrition, which divides classroom messages with sports-based sessions that have been shown to reduce childhood obesity rates. 

Hollis, who is ambassador for A Game of Two Halves, supported by Fantasy Island and the NHS, said: “Helping out in the community is part of our job as players and I enjoy working with the children and getting them involved in Notts County. 

"Obesity is a huge problem and we can make a difference by going in and it’s good to do."

A Game of Two Halves sessions will be appearing in schools throughout Nottinghamshire during the second half of the season.
