Volunteer to be part of something truly Special

The Special Olympics GB Anniversary Games will be held from 9-13 August 2018 at the University of Stirling.

The Games will celebrate Special Olympics GB's 40th birthday (SOGB was founded in 1978) and also the 50th birthday of the worldwide Special Olympics global movement (set up in 1968 by President JFK’s sister Eunice Kennedy Shriver).

Approximately 1,400 athletes with intellectual disabilities from all over the UK and Europe will compete across a range of nine different sports, including badminton.

There are still opportunities to be involved in the Games, with the Organising Committee searching for enthusiastic volunteers to help run the various events.
