Calling all care homes!

On Wednesday 20th September, we would like to invite 100 care home residents (and their care professionals) to attend the most prestigious sporting event in the county this year! 

From Tuesday 19th September - Sunday 24th September, 300 of the world's top athletes head to the Lee Valley White Water Centre in Waltham Cross, to battle it out across a week of thrilling competition at one of the best venues in the world.

Herts Sports & Physical Activity Partnership (HSP) are the social impact partners for the event and as part of this, we aim to increase awareness, accessibility and sustainability for the event and the sport in Hertfordshire! We would therefore, like to offer you the opportunity to claim up to 15 tickets, funded by HSP, for your care home residents to enjoy the day.

- We will be in touch after the closing date to confirm whether you have been successful with your ticket allocation and next steps.
- Please note, HSP are only funding ticket costs. The ticket holder will be responsible for getting to and from the event, as well as any other costs incurred outside of the ticket for example, food and drink.
