Members of Special Olympics Eastbourne welcomed Paul and Pascale from Concept Financial Planning. The company organised a group to take part in the Reigate half marathon. As they have an office in Eastbourne and Reigate the funds raised were shared between Special Olympics Eastbourne and a local Reigate charity. Some of the £1600 raised provided both a polo shirt and sweat shirt for every athlete.
Paul, Pascale and local Sports Massage Therapist, Will May who supported the marathon runners, watched the athletes at their training session and then presented the kit.
The afternoon finished with a big Special Olympics Eastbourne cheer for their benefactors.

It’s a Special Knockout
Members of Special Olympics Eastbourne took part in the “It’s a Special Knockout” competition at Bede’s School, The Dicker, organised by The Lions. Two teams were entered – the Yellow Perils and the Bumble Bees. Yellow Perils achieved the most points and won overall, taking home the cup for the third year running. Bumble Bees won the cup for the best team spirit – this was a new trophy and the idea of the students who helped at the event. There were many games to cater for all abilities, together with a disco mid competition. A great afternoon was had by all.
