A Crosspool-based fitness initiative will be holding a free, charity health and fun day on Sunday 16 September from 12-4pm at Hallam football club on Sandygate Road.
The event is being held to promote healthy living in the community and raise money for The Sick Children’s Trust. There’ll be activities such as football and other sports to get involved with, a healthy BBQ with lots of great ideas for a more nutritional grill, stalls from various health-related traders and a raffle, bouncy castle and games. Smoothies and drinks will be available from the new Hallam clubhouse.
Former Tapton pupil Kate Hill is organising the fun day as part of her FunMeFit initiative. FunMeFit is a central hub for local sports clubs, activity groups and larger organisations to list details about what they’re doing so that families in Sheffield and further afield can choose what activity to try next and get active.
Kate recently moved back to Crosspool after a decade living in other areas of Sheffield. She said: “We’re a family trying to help other families feel like part of a community with support and resources to get healthy and find fun activities to take part in. I organised this free event to make more people aware of what we’re trying to do and to raise money for a very worthy cause. Whatever the weather, there will be lots going on.”
Kate is also looking for any local businesses to support the fun day, for example through raffle prizes or healthy BBQ food. You can get in touch with her using email@example.com or via the FunMeFit website.
