npower Teams Up With Kevin Keegan For No Power Hour
Released on: June 20, 2011, 2:04 am
npower has announced it will be teaming with Kevin Keegan to
help fans of the beautiful game save energy in Sunderland.
Former Newcastle boss Keegan will visit the city to encourage families to spend an
hour doing something fun without using electricity.
And the 60-year-old reckons a kick-about is the perfect way to get fit and help the
environment at the same time.
Kevin Keegan said: "The No Power Hour is
designed to get kids and parents off computers and get them out for an hour after
switching everything off.
"We're in Sunderland first then in a couple of weeks up in Leeds - it's a
fantastic set-up we've got.
"We're not saying you can replace technology, it's here forever after all. What
we're saying is sometimes you've got to switch it off and spend a bit of time with
your kids - and you can do it together.
"You can do things that will become a lot of fun for you. What happened to making
kites and things like that?
"What we're saying is come out and just do something with your kids, the things
you do that are great fun and cost nothing except the effort to get out the house
and go somewhere."
Children and parents can join Keegan's master class at Seaburn Recreation Park
where he will display football skills they can practise together in back gardens, on
playing fields, at the beach, the sports centre, the park and even in the living
room using no power.
Children can also get involved on the Climate cops,
where they can download a mission chart, to keep track of the activities they
