TopMayor of London Community Athletics Grant

The Access To Sports Project was lucky enough to have been successful with a Mayor of London Community Athletics Grant to deliver an athletics programme over the summer holidays.  Programmes included sessions at Elizabeth House, Finsbury Park Athletics Track and Millfields Park and over 150 young people took part in a range of fun athletics activities.  As part of the project a number of young people were also lucky enough to attend both the IAAF World Para Athletics Championships and the IAAF World Athletics Championships 2017 at the London Stadium on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

To top off an exciting summer of athletics we also held an Athletics Event at Finsbury Park Athletics Track where young people competed in a number of athletics competitions.  On the day we were lucky enough to be joined by Great Britain Para Shot Putt Athlete Vanessa Wallace who competed at the recent World Para Athletics Championships and the Rio Paralympics.

 

 

 

 

 

TopChosen Charity for Hackney

The Access To Sports project (along with SkyWay and Off Centre) has been lucky enough to have been chosen as one of the three Hackney Speaker charities for 2017/18.  We will be doing a number of fundraising events throughout the year to help ensure we can all continue the good work we are doing to deliver positive activities for young people in Hackney.  We started our events on Saturday 2nd September when one of our staff members, Sharareh Avazzadeh bravely took on the challenge of freefalling 262 feet from the UK’s tallest sculpture – ArcelorMittal Orbit, on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park alongside two Hackney Councillors, the Speaker’s Consort, and two people representing Off Centre and SkyWay.

TopJudy Murray Visits Hackney

This Easter we had Judy Murray the famous tennis coach and also the mother of Andy Murray make a guest appearance at our SEND programme at Stormont House.

Our young people also got the opportunity to meet Kelly Smith, the professional female Arsenal Football player. Young people got the opportunity to ask them questions, take pictures and got involved with some of the activities on offer. This provision has been growing over the past year and has seen young people to learn, develop and grow new skills in a variety of sports activities. A focus upon improving health outcomes is embedded throughout our provision as part of healthy living lifestyle as well as developing social skills.

A number of young people from different groups attended the provision including Hackney Ark, students from Stormont House School, referrals from the Garden School and also some who self-referred.
