Get Active Burngreave

Story by Kathryn Mudge, South Yorkshire Sport

South Yorkshire Sport have recently got funding from Comic Relief and Sport England to deliver a range of sport and physical activities to help to improve lives of people in the Burngreave community. Following a three month consultation period, we are now offering funding to support local groups. This will enable them to deliver sport and physical activity which has a sustainable impact on the community and can empower people to lead healthier and active lifestyles.

South Yorkshire Sport will provide training and skills for anyone aged 14+ interested in supporting the project, through the Active Burngreave leaders programme. You are all welcome to attend the Active Burngreave launch event on 12th November 2016 2-5pm at the English Institute of Sport. A range of free activities will be on offer, with qualified sports coaches and local community leaders. We are hoping to put on a free minibus from Burngreave.
