Last Saturday (9 July) was Get Active Day in Wandworth. This was the first day in a festival that lasts until 24 July. As the name suggests, it is the start of a two week festival designed to help people get active in sports and the community.
There were a host of different organisations involved representing activities such as: tennis, football and yoga. Of course, Volunteering Wandsworth also had a pitch to help promote the service.
The Spots v Stripes Community Games aims to get millions of people across the UK and Ireland playing games by London 2012. Games can act as a catalyst to help bring the community together in the spirit of play. As part of this, Groundwork, is recruiting 2000 volunteers across the country. To date programme has encouraged nearly 36,000 people to play games at over 644 Spots v Stripes community events across the UK and Ireland. We’d like to invite you to be part of it.
