Head to South Park Gardens, Wimbledon on Sunday 23 June for Taste of Sport; a day of fun challenges and delicious food, all in aid of good causes. Try new activities – from boxing to capoeira, listen to live music and meet Haydon the Womble, while supporting Molly’s Smile Fund.
The fund raises money for charities, including St George’s Hospital general intensive care unit (GICU), as a tribute to student, Molly Burdett, who died aged 19, shortly after being diagnosed with a rare blood disease. Her family and friends set up the fund, in her memory, a week after her death.
Sponsored by Andrew Scott Robertson, estate agents and APPI, Pilates and physio, the Taste of Sport event will take place from 10am to 1pm on Sunday 23 June in South Park Gardens, SW19 8PN.
The event will include races and workshops throughout the day. You can:
- Grab a selfie with Wimbledon AFC mascot, Haydon the Womble
- Dance to live music and have a try at swing and capoeira
- Try a taster session – choose boxing, skipping or strength training with top personal trainers
- Join a pilates class with APPI Wimbledon clinic’s team of physiotherapists and instructors
- Find expert advice on getting back to exercise, after an injury for example.
Delicious food will be available for £7.50 per adult or £4 for the under 13s, plus there’ll be drinks and snacks for sale all day.
Taste of Sport will raise money for St George’s Hospital GICU, Mind, Cancer Research UK, SOS Children’s Village, Mauritius and Momentum Children’s Charity (which supports children with life-limiting conditions in South West London and Surrey).
To book a place and food at the event, email email@example.com or pop into Bliss in the Park kiosk in South Park Gardens. Entry costs £5 for a family of four or £2 for individuals – you can also pay on the day.
Andrew Scott Robertson previously sponsored the event when it was last held in 2017. Marc Gregory, Director of Residential Sales, said: “Taste of Sport is a brilliant community day out. It’s a chance for families to get together in beautiful South Park Gardens, try some fun activities and compete against friends in some sporty challenges. Best of all we’ll be raising money for some really good causes, via the amazing Molly’s Smile Fund. Let’s hope we get plenty of sunshine!”
Additional sponsors are the park’s personal training crews – Fitwise, HA Fitness, Fitnessize and Fitstate as well as Bliss in the Park.
