Enjoy a school sports day at home

Many children who have not been able to get back to school will be missing their annual sports days.

However, Persimmon Homes South Coast – thanks to its ongoing partnership with The British Olympic Association – is offering parents the chance to download special sports packs for free so they can start planning their own sports day at home.

World Championship silver medallist and Team GB Tokyo 2020 hopeful Laviai Nielsen (athletics) helped to launch the virtual sports day scheme.

The campaign also includes a social media competition asking people to take a picture or video of their home sports day and either comment on Facebook or upload to Instagram with the hashtag #PersimmonSportsDay to be in with a chance of winning a £250 Amazon voucher.

Matt Paine, managing director of Persimmon Homes South Coast, said, “We are all going through unprecedented times, and we hope that our sports day campaign will bring a smile to people’s faces and help households plan a day of fun and activity. These packs are designed to help inspire the sporting passion of the younger generation.”
