From 10am on Friday 23rd to 10am on Saturday 24th we live-streamed boccia-themed activities, interviews, and entertainment as part of The Big Bocciathon!

Thank you!

We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped us run the event - from hosting live interactive sessions, to providing pre-recorded content - you made the event what it was! 

An extra special thank you to Academy athlete, Peter Langton, who first came up with the idea when thinking about ways to help us to raise much-needed funds in the wake of the pandemic, and who was the Host with the Most on the day itself!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the sessions from online workouts to quizzes and bingo! We hope you had fun!

We were truly blown away by the generosity of those who donated - you've raised £979 (plus gift aid) which will make such a difference to the lives of disabled athletes as we support players and volunteers to get safely back to boccia.



Watch it back!
