On July 10, 41 athletes from MacIntyre’s Bedfordshire Lifelong Learning took part in the annual Bedfordshire Games, taking home a total of 20 medals. 350 athletes took part, competing in a range of field and track events held at Bedford Athletics Stadium. The events included: independent and assisted walking races, shot-put, javelin, running and wheelchair races.
The games were an opportunity for people to take part or simply support their friends.
Rebecca Dunhill, Senior Support Worker at Bedfordshire Lifelong Learning said:
“There was a brilliant atmosphere and the people we support loved being involved and showed excellent sportsmanship. A highlight was seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they received their medals.”
