Have fun and do good during your summer holidays

We'll all be spending a little more time at home than normal this summer.

But that doesn't mean your summer can't be fun-filled - we've lots of activites to help you stay entertained, keep fit and do good over the warmer months.

Check out our top 5 things you can do get involved with Aberdeen Cyrenians this summer:

1. Learn about homelessness with Lego

Read Robert’s story and learn about how people who are homeless have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

He’s a young man with a big problem and you can help him by building the things he needs to get by and make a new life out of Lego. Find the story and share your creations here.

2. Take on a fierce, football-themed team exercise challenge

We might be playing less football but that doesn’t mean we can’t all still celebrate the beautiful game.

Put together a team and virtually travel 555 miles to all 12 Scottish Premiership stadiums. Race back home again to Pittodire and raise money as you go.

For wee footie fans, aim for 55.5 miles, and walk, run, cycle, climb or jump to the final whistle.
