Sporting heroes

Using the theme of sporting hero to base your activity on is a great idea. You could choose a famous national or local sports man or woman, a local sports man or woman who achieved against adversity, or several people who you feel haven’t been celebrated and whose stories should be told.

There are many examples of community groups and organisations developing sporting heroes programmes and they are always popular and successful. For example Edinburgh Museums and Galleries conducted a campaign to vote for local sporting heroes, and schools up and down the country often choose this as the topic to base their sporting heritage activity on.
