More power to Active Burngreave

Your Local Area

Story by Councillors Talib Hussain, Mark Jones and Jackie Drayton

As local councillors, we are aware we have many wonderful people in our area, all of them wanting to make a difference for the people of our fantastic community.

So it was brilliant to hear that ‘The Burngreave Active Collective’ won the ‘Move More Power of Sport Award 2018’, at the Olympic Legacy Park’s Celebration of Sport Event.

The Collective is a group of organisations all involved in ‘Active Burngreave’ (ACT, Fir Vale Community Hub, Ellesmere Youth Project, Pitsmoor Adventure Playground, Sheffield Futures, and MAAN Somali mental health, Mothers of Burngreave, Somali Disability Group, Green City Action and SAGE Greenfingers). They bring the community together to build on the local assets and skills of local people to help local people lead healthier and active lifestyles at the same time as training a group of 70 local volunteers to support over 1,000 Burngreave people to take part in activities each week over the last 2 years.

Safiya Saeed, Kathryn Mudge, Sahal Barre, Tes Awoke and Abdul Malik collected the award on behalf of all the organisations involved in the Active Burngreave Collective, at the English Institute of Sport.

Well done to all those involved and many thanks for all their hard work.
