Will Greenwood and Austin Healey on why Festival of Sport is what families need this summer

After 12 months of lockdown, weeks of cancelled grassroots sport has taken its toll, not just on thousands of kids, but their parents too. They have missed the social interaction of cheering on their offspring from the sidelines, week in, week out.
