Wayne Inspires PlayBallís Cheetahs

11 April 2012

Young people from the Cheetahs Easter Holiday Camp at PlayBall, Stormont were inspired by Olympic Boxer, Wayne McCullough, who came along to offer encouragement and support as they took part in their very own Ďminií Olympics.

The Cheetahs initiative, which is made up of a number of sports camps and a sport outreach programme was awarded the prestigious Inspire mark by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games in 2011. The Inspire mark is the badge of the Inspire Programme - a UK-wide participation initiative which recognises innovative and exceptional non-commercial projects which are inspired by the 2012 Games. The Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure is the government department responsible for management of the Inspire Programme in Northern Ireland, as part of its wider strategy to deliver a local legacy from the 2012 Games.

Wayne McCullough, who is an ambassador for the Inspire mark programme said, "It's a privilege for me to see at firsthand the effort being made in Northern Ireland by those involved in the Inspire programme in order to build upon a legacy which will last long after London 2012. Meeting the 'Cheetahs' was a joy, even though they were better long jumpers than me!

The Cheetahs Summer Holiday Camp will run from the 16th July - 17th August 2012 and will provide 5 -12 year olds with the opportunity to take part in a huge range of sporting activities including Olympic sports such as athletics, hockey, football and tennis.
