From Opening to Closing ceremonies (and, of course, the sport in between!) London 2012 and Team GB delivered way beyond our expectations! As we gear up for the Paralympics (starting on 29th August) our thoughts turn already to legacy and ‘inspiring a generation’. At Jubilee Hall Trust, our agreement with the NBA means that we will have six basketball clinics for disadvantaged London children over the next 18 months and we will also have some of the NBA funds to spend on broadening and deepening our other community sports work.
We are also currently gearing up to launch more free MEND programmes for obese children in both Camden and Southwark, starting in September. These programmes teach young people about nutrition and healthy lifestyles and introduce them to a variety of physical activities. Whether they end up taking part in Bollywood dance for fun or compete at the highest level in international sport, we want to give everyone the chance to benefit from London’s incredible Olympic summer.
