Over 1,000 children and young people from across Sussex had a marvellous day at the Sussex School Games at the end of June – and some of the team from sponsors Specsavers popped along to join in the fun.
The games, which took place at K2 Crawley, were supported by 16 stores from across Sussex for the first time in 2019.
Great team competition
Participants took part in 14 different sports on the day, including athletics, gymnastics and stoolball.
Teams took part from schools right across the county as part of the area teams Brighton & Hove Hawks, Central Sussex Dolphins, Crawley Cougars, Hastings & Rother Leopards, Mid Sussex Panthers, North Wealden Warriors, South Downs Giants, Southern Sharks and West Sussex West Wolverines.
An amazing day
Badrinath Mohandas, store director in Hailsham and Uckfield and regional chair for the Specsavers stores in Sussex, said: ‘We had an amazing day at the Sussex School Games.
It was great to meet so many of the children taking part, and to catch up with former Olympic rower Charles Cousins who was there to inspire everyone. ‘Everyone taking part had a brilliant time and the sense of team spirit was a lovely thing to see. We hope to see some of them and their families in store soon.’
