Mayflower 400 Sporting Voyage Schools Programme goes online

Mar 27, 2020

Plymouth Argyle Community Trust (PACT) has turned its Mayflower 400 Sporting Voyage Schools Programme into an online series.

In response to the need to promote wellness and activities that can be accessed and implemented remotely home, PACT has put together a number of resources which will enable children and adults alike to take part in the programme from the comfort of their own home.

They include two Mayflower 400 videos, an M400 Sport downloadable / printable activity booklet, plus six digital e-Learning and sporting Home Challenges.

What’s more, for every completed home challenge submitted, entrants will receive a downloadable certificate that can be printed – both acknowledging effort and giving families and individuals the chance to be part of something.

All submitted Home Challenges will be entered into the 'Pilgrim Stars of the Week' competition, and will also be in with the chance of winning a Mayflower 400 badge.

Here are the Mayflower 400 Sporting Voyage Schools Programme resources. Simply click the links to find out more:

Share your achievements on social

Plymouth Argyle Community Trust and Mayflower 400 would love to share the achievements of all those taking part.

Once you have uploaded your challenges and received your e-Certificate, share with us your award on social media by tagging @mayflower400uk and @PAFCCommunityTr - also tag #Mayflower400 and #M400sport and as many entrants will be re-shared as possible.

We will promote one challenge each week but you can do them in any order you feel or do as many as you like.

The aim will be to keep the challenges running until the summer – subject to the current climate - but we will let you know on the website before the competition closes.

Thank you and enjoy being part of Sporting Voyage!
