Staff Sports Day 2016

Winners: The IncredibleS

Winners: The IncredibleS

Staff Sports Day has been and gone for another year and the winners, for a record breaking third time, were the ‘IncredibleS’ from Information Services.

The day involved your traditional school sports day events such as the Sack Race and the Egg and Spoon. This year also saw the beach ball relay introduced which involved some very interesting and clever techniques!

The day was a huge success even if the weather did everything it could to try and dampen spirits. After waiting 15 minutes under cover to see if the rain would stop it was decided that we would brave the wet and get on with the day regardless; which proved to be a great decision. The rain did stop, although it was pretty much just as we were heading inside for the awards!

An incredible £1,329 has been raised so far and that is just from the online Just Giving pages, we are still waiting confirmation on how much was raised from the BBQ and raffle. If you would still like to donate towards Brain Tumour Research then you can use this link.

A massive thank you to everyone that took part and all of the businesses that donated such generous raffle prizes towards a great cause. You can find all of the photos from the day here.
