Earlier this summer, customers from our Attleborough Community Hub travelled to Boston in Lincolnshire to take part in the Special Olympics East Midlands Regional Athletics Competition.
Together with members of the Hamlet Centre in Norwich they formed a team representing Norfolk which brought home a combined total of 27 medals.
The team took part in the running, throwing, jumping and relay events and everyone came home with at least one medal.
We’d like to offer big congratulations to everyone who took part – from Andrew, who’s a veteran of the Special Olympics, to first-timer Beth.
Also huge thanks to Carla, Karen, Jerry and volunteer Julie for making the event happen and supporting customers on the day, and to Norse Transport for sponsoring the travel costs.
