Over 100 residents attended this year's Sports Challenge
We held our fifth annual Sports Challenge event at Finsbury Park Athletics Stadium on Saturday 14 September with over 100 residents from across London attending.
Organised by a team of staff and resident volunteers, the Big Lottery funded Sports Challenge was organised as part of the Activate London programme of activities. Events on the day included space hopper and egg and spoon races, slide resistance games and a tug of war challenge.
Winners from the athletic events were presented with medals.
Staff were on hand throughout the day to talk to residents about the housing services they receive and to promote the ways that residents can get involved with shaping services at Southern Housing Group.
Abul Sorwar, Activate Officer at Southern Housing Group, said, “The Activate London Sports Challenge encourages children to get involved in fun physical activities which benefits their overall health and wellbeing.
“Saturday's event was a great success with our residents from across London coming together to have fun and learn about health and fitness. The day would not have been such a success without the staff and resident volunteers who helped to run the event, so a big thank you to all those involved.”
