Earlier this month, the EFL Trust and Ferrero launched a new virtual ‘Winter Games’ pack which will help inspire children to get moving in the toughest months for activity levels. This followed a successful virtual Joy of Moving Home School Festival in the summer of 2020 where over 250,000 children got involved. Now those taking part can win prizes.
The Joy of Moving virtual ‘Winter Games’ is being shared with families and teachers across the country with the help of over 70 EFL Trust club community organisations, including Brentford FC Community Sports Trust. As schools remain closed for many children, the ‘Winter Games’ supports families at a crucial time when it is even more important for children to stay active and to achieve the recommended 60 minutes of activity each day.

The Joy of Moving pack also contains information on how prizes can be won. You can win £500 in sports equipment for your school. See more below.
The Joy of Moving programme is an unbranded CSR project by Ferrero. Together with the EFL Trust, the Joy of Moving programme has been supporting children to get active for more than seven years. The Joy of Moving programme is based on methodology which is designed to inspire children to move through play, and in doing so, build up their physical fitness, motor coordination, cognitive functions and creativity and life skills – helping to develop positive habits for adulthood.
In the UK, the programme consists of two in-school elements – the Move and Learn programme and the Joy of Moving Festivals, which have been developed in conjunction with EFL Trust. While these are on pause in line with temporary school closures, we are supporting the communities with access to free, online digital materials via our resource hub. Keep an eye out for the hashtag #JOMWinterGames on social media for further updates and ways to get involved, and for more fun games to play, visit the online Resource Hub here.
