SPAR UK is giving away £50,000 in support of Sports Days across schools in the UK. This scheme will give schools across England, Scotland & Wales a chance to apply for £200 grants to buy new sports equipment. SPAR teamed up with GB Hurdler Marli Jessop and her secondary school, St Joan of Arc to discuss the importance of Sports Day and get them ready for their big day! 

Applications are now closed. 

Launching 8th February 2024, schools from across England, Scotland & Wales can apply for the grant. All applicants need to do is enter their school details and share what the grant will go towards. So check back for your chance to enter on the 8th of February 2024.

Sports have always been an important part of school life and it is more important than ever that we invest in providing our schools with the resources they need to make sure that our children are active and engaged.

We are offering a grant to support UK schools in hosting their own sports day. With this grant, you can win the necessary sports kits for your local school and help create an active and engaging environment for your pupils.

To be eligible for this grant, you must tell us why you want the grant and how it will help your local school become more active. We want to hear from you about how this grant will benefit your pupils and how it will help them stay active during their time at school.

Stretching gives your body a gentle wake-up call, making it loose and ready for action. It's like a secret power-up for a day filled with excitement. Try moving your body in different ways to feel the stretch and get set for your sports day. Stretching is a great way to start every day - your body will thank you later.
Being active can make you very sweaty, especially if it's a HOT day. Your body needs water to stay cool and energised. Keep a water bottle handy, take small sips, and stay refreshed. Staying hydrated is a smart habit for every day to make sure your brain and body work as they should.
Fruits provide essential vitamins to boost your energy levels, getting you ready for action. Fruits like oranges, bananas, and apples are perfect for Sports Day. Oranges are full of vitamin C to support your immune system, bananas provide potassium to prevent muscle cramps, and apples offer a quick energy boost with natural sugars.
Sports Day is all about taking part and doing your best. Whether you're running, jumping, or cheering, having fun, and building friendships is the ultimate prize.
