Chalvey Can – Play Snap Win challenge launched!

Published: 29 October 2020

Sport England Lottery funded project Chalvey Can has launched its new family challenge called Play Snap Win with the aim of getting Chalvey families trying activities and moving more together. The challenge runs through October to December and challenges include a ride or scoot along the Jubilee River and Frisbee piggy in the middle.

The winner of the Summer Challenge was drawn this week, as each family which completed the challenge was entered into the prize draw to win a brand new bike!

Abdifatar Hassan, won the Giant hybrid bike complete with helmet and lock and collected his prize this week from Sarah Nicholls, Active Communities Behaviour Change Officer, when they met at Chalvey Recreation Ground.

Abdifatar said “I still can’t believe I have won this amazing bike, thank you so much. We took part in the challenge as we wanted to spend time together us a family while still having fun, sitting home watching tv was boring and we saw this opportunity which sounded great. It’s showed us lots of ways of exercising while having fun and giving a positive mind-set towards exercising. One activity we will continue with and we really loved was doing was the trails, exploring the parks and outdoor games specially table tennis.”

Abdifatar’s mum Ibada Dhagey said: “I am so happy that I took part in this program, and we were happily shocked that Abdifatar won! I got lots of benefits from taking part and I am looking forward to participating in the upcoming events and Play Snap Win family challenge”

Cllr Natasa Pantelic, cabinet member for health and wellbeing said: “Well done to Abdifatar and his family for completing the Chalvey Can Summer Family Challenge and winning this fantastic bike in the prize draw! If you live in Chalvey it’s time to get involved in this exciting project, to get Chalvey families moving more together.
