Events: Action Asthma Sport

This ground-breaking project kicked off in February 2004 when our mascot: the George-o-saurus, our asthma nurse, trustees and volunteers from the Fund visited a number of local Infant and Junior Schools to hold an asthma assembly.

These assemblies were fun, informative and the George-o-saurus enjoyed them immensely. At the assemblies we also launched the art competition and all the children were asked to draw a picture of the George-o-saurus, participating in a sport or activity.

The school that won the art competition received a further visit from the George-o-saurus at their annual Sports Day. The project was kindly sponsored by the Network Children's Fund.

With this project we achieved:

  • The promotion of social inclusion for children with asthma amongst their peers
  • The education of children on the importance of exercise
  • The provision of information about Asthma for schools
  • The provision of information regarding Asthma for parents

Here are some photos from one of the assemblies followed by some of the fantastic pictures drawn by the children; including the two final winners. Their pictures were made into badges!
