A youth programme putting children on a healthy course in life is being backed by Butterfield Bank.

The Family Centre’s Beyond Rugby and Beyond Yoga programmes are set to deliver more than 100 sessions this year for roughly 90 public school students to benefit from additional support.

The Beyond programmes are designed to bring down barriers to taking part in sport.

They also promote physical health and mental wellbeing, and encourage young people to choose positive lifestyles, resist antisocial behaviour and achieve academic progress.
