Special Olympics Exeter and District Club volunteer and partner recruitment event proves a huge success
05 Sep 2012
Special Olympics Exeter and District Club
hosted a volunteer and partner recruitment event at the Riverside
Leisure Centre, Exeter on Tuesday 4th September. The event brought
together a number of key partners from the city including Active
Devon and Exeter Lions, and over 15 volunteers keen to help with
the development of the new club.
Active Devon provided volunteer training through the Sport
Makers delivery programme, with presentations from Exeter Lions and
Julian Wills, sported. South West Regional Manager.
The evening's event culminated in the opportunity for attendees
to have their photographs taken with the Olympic torch.
The club is now in a strong position to formally constitute and
plan the delivery of sports activities for young people and adults
with learning disabilities. With the support of sported Mentor
James Bogue the club anticipates starting to deliver activities in
the new year. For more details about the club, and to see how to
