We are excited to be part of the newly formed MK Movers group – a network of like minded organisations, who have come together to help children and young people of Milton Keynes to become active with a wide range of sports and physical activities to offer. This amazing programme is supported by LEAP and Milton Keynes Community Foundation. Members include:
Leap is a social enterprise that aims to improve the lives of residents in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes through facilitating and/or funding physical activity and sport activities.
Milton Keynes Community Foundation is a leading grant-making charity sending funding where it’s needed most in Milton Keynes. They lead the way in supporting community projects and charitable activities to help create a fairer more connected community.
