Special Olympics GB National Summer Games Activity Festival

Special Olympics GB National Summer Games Activity Festival

The Special Olympics Summer Games are coming to Sheffield from 7 – 11 August. Lots of people with a learning disability from the city are going to be involved – as athletes taking part,as volunteers helping out or as spectators cheering .Now there’s another way for local people with a learning disability to be part of this fantastic event.

The Activity Festival on Wednesday 9 August offers the chance to try out new sports. It takes place at the English Institute for Sport (Sheffield) from 12.00pm – 5.00pm.

Look at the Activity Festival Poster for more information on the event.

If you would like to attend the Activity Festival please complete the Registration Form . You’ll need to return the form to Special Olympics GB at joanne.meecham@sogb.org.uk by Friday 21 July.

You can also support the Activity Festival by volunteering your time . There was an incredible response from people wanting to volunteer at the Games but the Activity Festival still needs around 20 volunteers to help with signing-in or to support participants to get involved on the day. If you can help, please email Laura at laura.davies@sogb.org.uk.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
