Pendle, UK — FUNDA LAND, a beacon of innovation and community spirit in the heart of one of the UK's most deprived areas, proudly announces its recent victory at the AIP Industry Awards as the Best Indoor Attraction 6,000-12,000 sq ft in the UK.

This award celebrates FUNDA LAND's commitment to reshaping children's futures both in and out of school by promoting active, healthy lifestyles that last a lifetime.

"Every child deserves a chance to play and thrive, regardless of their background. At FUNDA LAND, we're committed to making that a reality," said Kieran Fletcher, Founder and Creative Director.

Toby Whittaker, Managing Director of Northlight, where FUNDA LAND is a valued business tenant, expressed his pride in their achievements. "FUNDA LAND's innovative approach to child development and active play is truly commendable. Their dedication not only enriches the lives of children but also enhances our community."

The centre includes a two floor UV Lazer Tag Zone, Bumper Cars, Giant Soft Play, three private themed party rooms and has recently expanded its offerings to include a new Valo Interactive Climbing Wall (only 8 available in the UK) and a Baby and Toddler Sensory Play Area, enhancing its already diverse range of activities designed to stimulate physical, emotional, and cognitive development known as Physical Literacy to compliment FUNDA’s engaging holistic PE programme, active curriculum, holiday camps and wraparound childcare offer for schools.

FUNDA LAND's success and clear vision have not only resonated within the UK from industry leading experts and government departments but have also attracted the attention of educational ministries and schools in Saudi Arabia and UAE, setting a global benchmark in child-centric, holistic physical education, leisure and recreation.

"The UK government needs to recognise the potential of initiatives like FUNDA to empower children of today and in the future. We are making a positive difference here and now, I want children and families to know the importance of active play is to their child’s development,"  Kieran added.

With this award, FUNDA LAND reaffirms its role as a leader in providing innovative active and creative spaces where children can escape the confines of poverty and screen-based isolation to discover the joy and benefits of creative active play.

FUNDA invites stakeholders passionate about holistic child development, active childcare, sports and play to join in its mission to expand its impact across the UK and internationally.
