KEIGHLEY Cougars believe that no child in England should go hungry.

2020 has provided us all with different, and equally as tough, challenges since the COVID-19 outbreak in March of this year and the decision this week to not provide funding for free school meals for those who rely on them is the latest in the long line.

Therefore, during October half term next week the Keighley Cougars will be providing free lunches throughout the week, running from Monday (26th October) to Friday (30th October) between 12:30pm and 1:30pm.

We will provide free packed lunches that can be collected and taken away from Cougar Park, no questions asked, for children aged 16 and under throughout the half term break.

If your child requires a free lunch throughout next week then please get in touch with us.

You can ring or text our General Manager Lisa Gill, confidentially, on 07961 444851 or via email at

You can also send us a direct message on our social media platforms. Again, confidentially with no questions asked.
