Sporting Saturday

sporting satOn Saturday 18th January 2014, the Mayors Charity Committee hosted Peterborough’s first ever Sporting Saturday sports and leisure event for people with disabilities, their family members and carers.
The event which took place at The Cresset in Bretton allowed more than 40 organisations and clubs to showcase the facilities they provide for able-bodied and disabled people in and around Peterborough.
Some of the taster sessions on offer throughout the day included: indoor cricket, rowing and archery along with organisations such as the Police giving free boxing lessons.
Finds raised from admission charges will go to the Mayor’s chosen charities – Inspire Peterborough, Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, the Wednesday PHAB Club and Parents United.
