Here’s to Tokyo in 2020!

And Our Winner Is ...

After sixteen days of competition and several leaders along the way, on the final day the winner is Global Giving (3), by a single point from The 3 Wellys (1).

A special mention for the team in third place – Loony Lay-Abouts. We think we’re correct in saying they are the only ‘sister’ team to lead at any point – the other ‘Loony’ team, Loony Lympians, having had the lead in much of the early stages.

Thanks to everyone for supporting the competition, and we hope you enjoyed it and the daily updates. We’ll be back for Tokyo in 2020!

The Glebe Centre

Our 70 entries in this competition mean a prize fund of £35 for the winner, with the other £35 going to the Glebe Centre.

The Glebe Centre, based in Walsall, works with vulnerable adults providing a range of high quality, essential services. Follow them on Facebook to see the many ways in which you could support them.
