Sports Relief comes to Albert Road - £1400 raised and counting
A fantastic day was had by all at the recent Sports Relief day held in Albert Road Recreation Ground. The Mayor of Haringey, Councillor Gina Adamou, welcomed 150 runners and hundreds of local residents in an event that raised over £1400 with many contributions yet to be counted.
Bollywood dancing, Music, Jumble Stalls, Face Painting, Jewellery stands, Tennis competitions and the wonderful weather came together to make the day a great success. A new IPAD and tour of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club were some of the many great items auctioned to raise money for Sports Relief.
The day was organised in partnership with Friends of Albert Road Recreation Ground, The Pavilion Sports and Cafe', England Athletics and Haringey Council.
Peter Droussiotis , Chair of FARRG, said:
“Our Sport Relief event in Haringey exemplified all that is good about our local community and the Friends of Albert Road Recreation Ground. Thanks to our volunteers and the excellent partnership with Robby’s Pavilion, Sport England, Haringey Council, local schools and a diverse range of local musicians, the park became a hub of activity for most of the day with a variety of stalls, a silent auction, dancing, music and singing all of which added to the one, three and six-mile runs which were completed by families as well as more serious runners.”
Congratulations to everyone that was involved and made it such a special day.
