With just a few days to go until the Specsavers Sussex School Games, the final preparations for the most eagerly anticipated event of the year in the local sporting calendar are well underway.
And representatives of some of the 16 Sussex stores supporting the games for the first time in 2019 will be attending the event at K2 Crawley on Wednesday 26 June to join in the fun.
Awards to be won
Competitors from schools across the county will be taking part in a range of events in the hope of winning a medal – or even a special Spirit of the Games award.
The recipients of the latter award will be voted for by their fellow competitors for demonstrating one or more of the six School Games values: determination, honesty, passion, respect, teamwork and self-belief.
A terrific event
Badrinath Mohandas, store director in Hailsham and Uckfield and regional chair for the Specsavers stores in Sussex, said: ‘My colleagues and I are delighted to be able to attend on the day and share in what is sure to be a terrific event.
‘We are especially excited about the Spirit of the Games awards, as they really represent the values that we have as local businesses – and look forward to a fun-filled day.’
