Sporting Challenge

Annual General Meeting

2nd July 2012

Chairman’s Report



Sporting Challenge has continued to build on the success of previous years by increasing the number of activities it provides which now include: Zumba, Dance and Drama, Fitness Training, Swimming and Wii Games.

The funding has come mainly from: Baily Thomas, Co-operative Community Fund, Foyle Foundation and the Big Lottery Fund.

Also a sponsored walk we held in May 2011 raised £800 towards other activities not funded by grants.

Achieving charity status in February 2011 has helped in accessing further funding.

We now have a website which is updated on a regular basis and has links to social networking sites and other organisations

I would like to thank our committee members for their support in the past year especially our Secretary Edward McCarthy and Treasurer Richard Whitehead for their help.

Also I would like to thank the Sessional Workers we engage from West Lancs Positive Living who help support our members together with the staff from Domino Partnerships who now provide some of our activities.

The number of members has continued to grow and the feedback we have from them on how much they enjoy the activities encourages us to continue to provide these opportunities for them to keep fit and healthy, to socialise and make new friends.
