Suffolk athletes selected for the 2018 Special Olympics Great Britain Anniversary Games

A number of Special Olympics Suffolk athletes and badminton players have been selected to represent the Eastern Region in the 2018 Special Olympics Great Britain Anniversary Games which take place in Stirling from 9th to 14th August

The Games, marking the 50th Anniversary of the global Special Olympics movement and 40th Anniversary of being established in Britain, will feature teams from all regions of England, Scotland and Wales in addition to a number of European countries. Following on from last year’s National Summer Games, this will be the first taste of international competition for our team members and an exciting experience both within and outside the competition arena

This requires a lot of preparation not only for the athletes who are training hard but also for Special Olympics Suffolk and the athletes’ families and friends in raising the necessary funding to get them there

To help with this a Virgin Money Giving fundraising page has been set up on which donations may be made directly through the following link:

https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/displayCharityCampaignPage.action?campaignId=5957&charityId=1012904

Alternatively individuals, organisations or businesses wishing to contribute through other means or to have an informal conversation may make contact with Terry McEntee, Chair Special Olympics Suffolk at terrymcentee474@gmail.com or 07775557784

Any donation which you may be able to make will be greatly appreciated
