Meet the Inspire Activity Team behind the Community Games.
Community Games Founder
It’s March the 15th 2010 and I’m driving my car listening to a BBC WM Radio bulletin about this new idea of Community Games happening before the London 2012 Olympics and I thought I’m building one! Little did I know then just how fantastic a journey it would and continues to be, especially so now as we hope to emerge from the pandemic and stage Games in the many years to come.
So far we have connected thousands of people over the years with activity providers, inspiring plenty of health and happiness along the way, in safe and friendly environments. A core voluntary team, with their own personal community values at heart, underpin this and make it happen on every occasion.
Knowing and working with them is a wonderful experience. Everyone gives oodles of love, support and care because they all believe it matters. Activity does matter, through the pleasure it can bring to people in using their own energy, in making friends, with winning and losing, through challenging themselves or being part of a team.
I am proud to say we have grown to support other areas too this year delivering 14 Community Games across Birmingham and South Staffordshire. These include 4 Accessible Games, specifically designed to help people with physical and learning disabilities in Sutton Coldfield and Walsall, as well as our partnership with Birmingham Children’s Hospital Oncology and Haematology.
If 2020 had not been such a challenging time we would have added further Games in Walsall, Sandwell and at the Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital, for patients in the Oncology and Haematology Department.
So, as I write this now in May 2022 we are planning and delivering a biggest year of Community Games events yet! We can’t wait to see you there!
Much Love 🙏
