Gipping Press are an Official Supporter of Special Olympics Suffolk
Launched in 2014, SOS provides new opportunities for people, both children and adults, with an intellectual (learning) disability to take part in sport.
SOS promotes Special Olympics, provides advice, registers the athletes with Special Olympics GB and helps them access Special Olympics competition. Currently working with the 3 sports of athletics, badminton and gymnastics, SOS has to date organised 6 new competitions in the county and also supported athletes to take part in competitions across the south, including Kent, Hampshire and London. Key to enabling all this to happen is fundraising.
For the first time, 24 athletes from the county will be representing the Eastern Region in the 2017 Special Olympics Great Britain National Summer Games in Sheffield August 7th to 12th.
If you would like to help raise the funding required for the transport and training of the athletes from within Suffolk then Gipping Press have created a Virgin money Giving page where you can make a donation.
