Over £500 raised for Sport Relief

Each year the sport vocational area organise a range of events and activities in support of Sport Relief, and this year the team, along with participating staff and learners managed to exceed their £500 target, raising an impressive £550.

The sports vocational group were tasked with planning and co-ordinating events that would engage, motivate and encourage staff to get involved, and they certainly managed to achieve this. Activities included guessing the amount of equipment on a trolley, a squat challenge, a shooting hoop challenge, a boccia challenge, a new age curling number game, and circuit training to name just a few.

Staff took part in a 24 hour table tennis rally, and Mansfield Town FC also ran a coaching session for everyone to get involved with. Matthew Hughes, a university student from Sheffield Hallam who is also part of the university’s rowing team, also challenged anyone to have a go at beating his 500metre time.

Prizes were awarded to the winning participants for various events and activities, and Dave Winters stated that; ‘it was a pleasure to see so many learners taking part in the various activities and completing the sport relief mile’.

Dave also pledged that if the £500 target were to be achieved that he would shave his head in honour, so watch this space for an update on his new ‘do’!

Thank you once again to all staff for their participation and support.
