Sun-Pat has teamed up with Olympic Gold Medalist Sam Quek to help keep children fuelled and active this Easter break by offering a chance to win a free hockey lesson

New research shows that parents often find it hard to find new activities to keep their children entertained during the Easter break, and Sun-Pat is on hand to encourage children to try hockey, perhaps for the first time, learning skills from Sam Quek as well as enjoying a game with her.

‘I am passionate about being a role model for children and delighted to be able to give back by working with Sun-Pat,” says Sam. ‘ It is truly amazing the impact sports can have on children and by offering free hockey classes for kids nationwide I hope to encourage them to try something new that they might have not considered before.

“I eat Sun-Pat as part of my training diet and I really enjoy it on toast or even with a banana before exercising. Making sure you’re fuelled when doing sport is really important and I find leading a balanced and active lifestyle is key to achieving your goals.”
