Club 365 is now a permanent fixture.

The popular Club 365 programme has been permanently extended after a meeting of North Lanarkshire Council's policy and strategy committee.

The initiative, which has been attended by more than 1700 children since its inception, has had its funding secured alongside a PS200,000 investment in the Connecting Families programme, which will build on the work already being done with those who have used Club 365.

Education and families convener Frank McNally responded:"I'm delighted that Club 365 has been permanently extended.

"Thousands of children have already benefited, with many more set to enjoy the excellent activities and hot meals provided as we combat holiday hunger.

"The council has rightly received international recognition for Club 365 and I'm proud to be part of a Labour administration that is delivering for our hungriest children.

"I look forward to seeing Club 365 continue to go from strength to strength as we strive to eliminate poverty in schools across North Lanarkshire."
