There was a great atmosphere in the hall earlier this week, as 36 participants, from across Suffolk, came together to take part in the ActivLives Boccia Festival in Ipswich, in celebration of National Boccia Day 2021.

The event was supported by players from a variety of partner organisations including Avenues East Ipswich and Stowmarket, Wots Up, Papworth Trust and Mid-Suffolk Axis

The day also had star quality as Ipswich-based, Evie Edwards, recently returned from representing Paralympics GB in Tokyo, was on hand throughout the event to meet players and to present the awards.

A big ‘thank you’ must go to all of our great volunteers who gave their time, skills and energy to make it all happen. Thanks also to Special Olympics Suffolk, Active Suffolk, SCC and IBC, for their support with this event.
