Joe Cole and Aaron Martin help deliver the Kinder Plus Sport 'Move and Learn' project

18 November 2015

Coventry City's Joe Cole and Aaron Martin visited St. John's Primary School in Allesley yesterday, helping educate local children on the value of a healthy lifestyle.

Sky Blues in the Community are one of 16 Football League clubs who deliver the Kinder Plus Sport 'Move and Learn' project as part of the Football League Trust's healthy living and sports initiative, sponsored by Fererro.

Sky Blues in the Community were one of the original eight Football League clubs to deliver the project which aims to educate children on the values of eating right and living well.

The project will have been rolled out to over 30 schools across Coventry and Warwickshire by the summer which includes activities such as football, dodgeball and handball, and is free to schools.

Sky Blues in the Community Director Guy Rippon said: "We're delighted to see Joe and Aaron helping us deliver the programme across the Coventry and Warwickshire area.

"It is a project which we were pioneers in as we were one of the first to deliver it in the country last academic year and we've seen it go from strength and strength.

"They're in the middle of the six-week project and the players were there taking questions from pupils and hopefully inspiring pupils to improve their lifestyle."

Coventry City defender Aaron Martin said: "I've always enjoyed getting out in the local community during my time at the club as it is an important part of being a professional footballer.

"The pupils had some great questions for us and it is an important project for children as eating properly is vital for your development in sport and education.

"It is great to see some of the good work in the local community and it's great to see more children interested in Coventry City this season."
