This year anyone can be a sporting hero!

Whether it is planning a route, driving the kids to training or encouraging your friends to go down to the park for a kick about, sport doesn’t just happen, it needs people to make it happen.

As part of the official London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic legacy you could become part of a 40,000 strong army of ‘sportsmakers’ that will create new opportunities for people to play more sport. It is completely flexible, you decide what you want to do, when you want to do it and for who. 

By getting involved you can become the sort of sporting hero that makes a difference to the lives of people around them – and have a good time doing it.

Not only that but you also receive a free official Adidas kit and once you start making it happen you are automatically entered into a draw to win some exciting rewards, including Olympics tickets. 

On Tuesday 7th February, 6.30pm-9pm, there is a free ‘sportsmakers’ workshop, for anyone aged 16 or over, being held at Kibworth Cricket Club. Spaces are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis.

Councillor Blake Pain, who has responsibility for community engagement, cohesion and well-being at Harborough District Council, said: “This is a great opportunity for people to become part of the buzz that is surrounding London 2012. With a free workshop being held right on our doorstep it couldn’t be easier to get involved in helping to create that lasting legacy.”
