Families enjoyed a wide range of free sports activities at Priory Community School including dancing, gymnastics, athletics, and tennis. There was also free healthy food, a free giant bouncy castle, displays, physio appointments, a raffle, and free gym sessions at the Paula Radcliffe Centre along with cycling, rowing and ‘plank’ competitions.
James Cracknell OBE, who won two olympic gold medals in rowing, opened the event and then took part in many of the activities.
The Family Fitness Day was held to encourage families to get fit together and highlight what local clubs and sporting activities are available in the area.
The event raised hundreds of pounds for PCSA’s charity the Bone Cancer Trust.
Organiser Vanessa Mawford said: “This was an amazing event. James Cracknell’s appearance capped off a fantastic day.”
