′Get Set, Go′ Celebration Evening
Participants reunite for Celebration Evening at Carrow Park
Earlier this month, the Community Sports Foundation (CSF) hosted a Celebration Evening at Carrow Park for participants on the ‘On Your Marks, Get Set, Go!’ disability programme.
The evening gave the group from Assist Trust, an adult disability centre based in Norwich, the chance to celebrate their achievements along with their friends and family.
‘On Your Marks, Get Set, Go!’, which is delivered by CSF, runs annually and aims to develop three main areas for participants; communication, teamwork and leadership skills.
On the course, the group enjoyed a three night residential at Kingswood Overstrand Hall and took part in a number of exciting team-building activities including high ropes, bushcraft and archery.
Then, participants were tasked with planning and delivering a community project to raise money for the CSF’s Sporting Light Appeal. They organised a bag pack at supermarket chain Morrisons and held a ‘Cream Tea and Scone Day’ at the Assist Trust centre in Norwich.
There was certainly a lot to celebrate on the night, with over £500 raised in total. Each participant received a certificate to recognise their involvement in the project.
The money raised was also used to help fund a new football kit for the Assist Trust football team.
At the Celebration Evening, the kit was presented to Charles Moore, Support Co-ordinator at Assist Trust. The football kit will be worn by the team for the next match in the Aviva Adult Grand Prix League which continues next month.
The evening entertainment was well received, games were played and music was provided by Ray Humphries who runs the Great Yarmouth Gateway Club, a social club for adults with learning disabilities.
Darren Hunter, CSF Disability Development Officer, said:
“They were a fabulous group to work with and put their heart and soul into all aspects of the project.
“The evening was put on as a thank you to them for all their efforts and dedication throughout.”
