Special Olympics Great Britain launches new Crowdfunding campaign to support the 2017 National Summer Games

30th May 2017

Special Olympics GB supports 10,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities week in week out, transforming their lives, health, life opportunities and inclusion in society through sport.

 The Special Olympics GB National Games, our flagship week-long event in August 2017, is their time to shine. It’s their gateway to joy, inclusion, feeling special and being acknowledged for what they can do rather than what they can’t.

 But we need your help!


We want to ensure we can provide a truly inspiring Olympic-style Opening Ceremony for our 2600 athletes attending and their 6000 supporting family and friends. The Opening Ceremony is crucial to their experience.  It sets the tone for their event, gives them the boost they need to perform their very best and the platform to parade into an arena with their heads held high and to be cheered on by family, friends and an audience of 20,000 spectators.  Often for the first time in their lives

 Help us make their defining moment special.  Help us to celebrate their differences.
