After the success of our village sports day, we were pleased to not only get a mention at the Huntingdon District Council meeting as part of their discussion on the third sector but we also featured in the Hunts Post.

Sawtry Sport 4 All

Sawtry Sport 4 All

Sawtry Walk To Run were one of the main organisers for Sawtry Sport 4 All which was a fully inclusive sports day for the village.

Together with CARESCO, Sawtry Youth Project and Sawtry Village Academy we were successful in securing a Community Grant from the National Lottery which enabled us to put on this FREE community sport day.

A myriad of local clubs and organisations came together to show people what Sawtry has on offer. In addition, we were able to hire in some activities such a a climbing wall, smoothie bikes and an inflatable assault course. For our part, we supplied lots of volunteers on the day and had our own Run a Marathon in 3 hours challenge with people running laps of the 200 metre track. In total Sawtry ran 47 miles in those 3 hours!

Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and so we will be doing it all again next year!
