The Games


Fancy a fun family day out in aid of Ataxia UK (and two other fantastic charities)? Well then, head on down to the Belper Games in Derbyshire this July! The fun starts on Friday night with a movie night, playing two cult classic feature films. The Games take place on the Saturday alongside fairground attractions, medieval archery, a dog show and a bouncy castle to keep the kids amused. You can grab a drink at the real ale and cider festival, where all profits go to the charities. On Sunday, the festival vibes kick in! The Games will showcase an array of local musicians across two stages and more entertainment for children. There is certainly something for everyone at this annual event.

This year the Games have a theme: rock – so whether you want to dress up as The Rock, one of the Flintstones, or just sport your favourite jet black wig and whip out the air guitar, then this is the place to be!

Ataxia UK’s Derby Support Group will be holding an Ataxia UK stall at The Games. If you visit our stall, you will be in with the chance of winning a car! You’ll also have the opportunity to buy some Ataxia UK merchandise to help raise awareness of the condition.

Our thanks go to Kerry and Jim Bull for organising The Games, and for all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make this event bigger and better each year. We are also pleased to announce that in July, Ataxia UK will be running a Derby awareness campaign, and Kerry and Jim have agreed to be the faces of this campaign. The Belper Games will be the campaign’s finale, so let’s make it a good one! We hope to see you all there.
