MR BIG & MORE THAN GOLD!

MR BIG volunteer director of Community Arts & Culture, Sarah Lamballe popped down to
Market Rasen Primary School on Thursday, 9th August to present medals at the local MORE THAN GOLD Holiday Club run by volunteers from New Life Church.

50 youngsters, aged 7-11 were enjoying Olympic themed fun and games and having a fabulous time learning new skills and team work, whilst enjoying the sunshine at long last.

In addition to presenting bronze, silver and gold medals to the teams on the ‘Olympic
podium’, Sarah presented six I LOVE MARKET RASEN mugs, from MR BIG, to children
chosen by youth worker, Rhona Shepherd, for their fantastic artwork created that day.

Sarah said: “It was a fantastic atmosphere, with Chariots of Fire playing in the background as the torch bearer ran in from the field and selected one of the teams to ‘light’ the cauldron – the kids themselves were operating the sound system and came up with a fabulous crackle sound, to help Paul Hiley, as master of ceremonies, add to the drama of the occasion!”

Sarah added “I was delighted to be invited to represent MR BIG and take the opportunity to tell our young people a bit about what we are trying to achieve as business owners, working with the community and town council to make Market Rasen a better place, to live, work and to visit. It was a pleasure to thank them for their help and support. In true Olympic spirit, I hope together we can inspire a generation.”

Photos from the event are now on display in the former Arena cafe, and looking fantastic!
