BARNSLEY College’s Sports Academy has received a grant to stage a selection of events in the run-up to London 2012.

The £2,500 grant from the Newham Barnsley Partnership Aspiration and Achievement Fund will support events to celebrate the seven key Olympic and Paralympic values – friendship, respect, excellence, equality, courage, determination and inspiration.

The £50,000 funding pot is managed by South Yorkshire Community Foundation.

The foundation supports activities, events and projects that celebrate and advance Barnsley’s relationship with Newham and the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games.

It aims to help the people of Barnsley to take part in, and feel part of, the Games.
