Ascot Supports the Berkshire School Games

On Friday, 28th June 2019, our team ran an horse equiciser activation at the Berkshire School Summer Games held at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre in Marlow to introduce children to the joys of riding a horse within the cultural village.   Ascot Supports is delighted to have been able to help fund these annual summer and winter games over the past 3 years, which are organised by Get Berkshire Active.
Around 1100 school children representing 76 Berkshire schools from across the County took part in a day of sporting action and culture.  Both primary and secondary school pupils, with the youngest participants aged 5 years old, competed to become the County Champions in physical activities including Rugby, Tennis, Athletics, Pentathlon, Rowling, SEN (Special Education Needs) Cricket - all developed specially for the event to include mixed and single gender competitions as well as inclusive events for special schools.
In addition, Ascot Supports also presented Get Berkshire Active with a cheque for £2,500 from the proceeds of a charity supplier cricket day recently held at the racecourse.
