There are just two more opportunities for people in Lincolnshire to join Sport Makers in time to qualify for the Sport England Olympic Ticketshare draw.
Anyone aged 16 years plus can become a Sport Maker; a national volunteering programme inspired by the London 2012 Games, by attending one of several workshops across Lincolnshire.
Two workshops in Sleaford and Louth take place next month before the deadline of 30th April to enter the Ticketshare draw.
Lizzie Couling, Workforce Development Manager at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, said:
“Every Sport Maker that completes ten hours of volunteering will be entered into a draw to secure one of hundreds of pairs of tickets to the Olympic and Paralympic Games .Ten hours of volunteering isn’t a great deal of time. There’s five weeks until the deadline, so you could complete five sessions lasting two hours and that would bank enough time to be entered into the prize draw.”
To enter the draw, all you have to do is become a Sport Maker by attending one of the workshops in Sleaford or Louth and record 10 hours of volunteering onto the Sport Makers website by Monday 30th April.
Coordinated by Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, Sport Makers aims to inspire 548 people in Lincolnshire to get involved in sport. It is open to anyone aged 16 and over.
10 Sport Makers in Lincolnshire have already completed and logged their 10 hours of volunteering, and will be entered into the Ticketshare draw.
Lewis Wright, age 19, said: “I became a Sport Maker to be part of the Olympic legacy and to get more people involved in sport. The Sport Makers inspirational workshop was brilliant. I have organised people to take part in different sports including football, badminton, tennis and squash. It has been good to get people back involved in sport.”
The Sport Maker workshops will be at Carres Grammar School in Sleafordon Tuesday 3rd April from 6.30 – 9.30pm and at Louth Pavilion on Wednesday 18th April from 6.30 – 9.30pm.
