Our latest social media campaign #yoursportingstory was launched during the Covid-19 lockdown in support of our current project activity.
Specifically, helping to promote both our Sport England funded project; focusing on the collections and stories of Disability and Women’s sports, and the ‘What’s Your Digital Story?‘ project, generously supported by Art Fund, which aims to encourage and provide direct support for individuals and organisations during lockdown to share their sporting stories and collections digitally.
#yoursportingstory was launched with a direct challenge to sporting personalities to search out a favourite object from their own sporting heritage collections, be it a medal, piece of kit, photo etc that holds a special memory and then for them to share the story behind it. Initially, we challenged our own Sporting Heritage ambassadors to lead the way, but please do get involved. We want to hear #yoursportingstory!
First up was World and European 800m medallist, Jenny Meadows.
