The Big Kids Sports Day

8 July 2017

We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting the Big Kids Sports Day on Saturday 9th September at Bournemouth Sports Club to raise funds for a multi-sport area at Portfield School.

The event will be a foam-filled “It’s a Knockout” style day with inflatable games, stalls and a barbecue.

Fiona Hawkins, our Fundraising Executive said; “The Big Kids Sports Day is a chance to relive your childhood sports day but with a difference! Teams will compete against each other in games that include giant inflatables, a large foam pit, gallons of water, character costumes and, if you make it to the final round, a giant slide and penguin chase! Perfect as a team building activity or simply a fun day out with family and friends, there will also be child friendly games, stalls, a licensed bar and a barbecue.”

“As well as enjoying a great day, by getting involved you will be helping to fund a dedicated multi-sport area at Portfield School. Our aim is to build an outdoor PE resource with specialist sports equipment that would enable our pupils to take part in regular physical activity. The benefits of doing sport are wide ranging; from boosting self-esteem and social skill development to improving mental health and wellbeing. To have this area available would be hugely beneficial for all of our pupils’ personal, social and educational development. So what are you waiting for? Sign up and take part in the Big Kids Sports Day today!”

Registration options are £15 per person or £20 including a barbecue serving and there is a minimum sponsorship of £30 per person required. Teams are to be 6 – 10 people in size but it is possible to enter as an individual and we will put you with a team.

To register please visit our events page or email fundraising@autismwessex.org.uk. Basepoint Business Centre in Bournemouth will match the total raised by the event.
