Getting in a sweat in aid of Derry’s amazing Playtrail

The Bogside and Brandywell Health Forum will this weekend be raising funds for Derry’s Playtrail.

The Playtrail is a unique outdoor play and educational facility located within the grounds of two special schools at Racecourse Road in the Pennyburn area of the city.

It provides an inclusive approach to play and provides increased training and employment opportunities for young adults with learning disabilities.

They also offer a number of party packages as well as seasonal events during Easter, Summer, Halloween and Christmas.

Tomorrow (Saturday), the Forum will be holding ‘One Big Circuit’ in Longtower Youth Club at 11am where you will get the chance to train in aid of the Playtrail.

Drop into Longtower Youth Club at 10am and get your blood pressure, weight, BMI and body fat checked before, perhaps, taking part in a workout.

The event costs £5 per adult, £3 per child (12+ only and must be accompanied by an adult) with all proceeds going to the Playtrail.

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, everyone is asked to come along wearing one piece of red clothing.
