School Games Fest to get major funding aid

Next year’s Sainsbury’s School Games Festival in Lincolnshire is set to build on the success of previous years, thanks to £45,000 of National Lottery funding.

The local organising committee for Lincolnshire has been awarded the funding from Sport England to deliver the School Games festival, alongside Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, next year.

It will be the culmination of year-round competitions within schools and between schools, with the most talented athletes progressing to compete across more than 30 sports including athletics, wheelchair basketball, hockey, volleyball and badminton.

Over 650 school children are expected to take part in the Winter School Games level 3 festival in Lincolnshire next year.

The Winter School Games will take place on Wednesday, 5th March 2014 at Grantham Meres Leisure Centre.
