Virtual Sports Day keeping children active

Gloucestershire County Council is holding a Virtual Sports Day for children and young people to keep them active and raise funds for NHS charities.

The council's Virtual School is challenging children to take part in a challenge in their home or garden on Tuesday, May 26 - it could be silly or sporty, last 10 minutes or two hours, as long as it is active.

Friends and family can sponsor the activity and you can share pictures or video on social media using the hashtag #VirtualSportsDay.

Councillor Richard Boyles, cabinet member for children's safeguarding and early years, said: "Gloucestershire's Virtual Sports Day is a great opportunity for all Gloucestershire children and young people, their friends and family to get involved, keep active and have fun.

"Activities can take place inside or outside, so it's one sports day which isn't dependent on the weather.

"We want as many children as possible to take part and I'm really looking forward to seeing what activities they all do and how much the event raises for the NHS."
