Local children were given a boost by SPAR Scotland at a sports initiative in Dundee. The retailer provided snacks and refreshments to all involved in the week long Sporting Excellence camp held at St Paul’s Academy. The event organised by Dundee City Council enables talented kids the opportunity to train with professional sports people including Grove Ladies Hockey Club and Guinness World Record Holder, Scott Napier.

Training and workshops were given for children who excel at Rugby, Football, Basketball, Gymnastics and Hockey. The camp ensures that their athletes are given positive encouragement with use of the best facilities.

SPAR representative Sharon Methven commented:

‘The Sporting Excellence camp shows the emerging sporting talent in the local area and we are delighted to be able to support this event, who knows Dundee may even have a future Olympic medalist in the making!’

SPAR are the official sponsor of European Athletics and are currently running Summer of Sport promotions in stores to highlight the championships in Barcelona.
