The Sharp Project Sports Day!

The Sharp Project Sports Day!

It’s been a while since we took part in a Sports Day, but last week Team Bird decided to show off our best egg-and-spoon racing skills and give our neighbours at The Sharp Project a run for their money (and a good laugh!) at the Sharp Project Sports Day.

A 60m running track fit for an Olympic Games event was brought into the building by Greater Sport who organised the fun and games. Disciplines included sports day classics including relay, indoor javelin and the sack race.

A change from her usual work attire, our Deputy CEO came dressed as Super Mario for the occasion; luckily for her the other teams got the fancy dress memo too! Kate came a respectable second place in the mascot scooter race, although it wasn’t quite enough to help us win.

We might not have been crowned champions (we were actually invited to take part in the ‘winning losers’ race) but the afternoon proved to be an enjoyable, team-building session for Bird. Plus, what better way to get to know some of our production and digital neighbours than competing against them in a three legged race? Well done to the Red tenants who took the winning title!

We were kind enough not to upload the video of Lorna taking a rather entertaining tumble in the sack race but for those that missed the #SharpProjectSportsDay it was well documented on social media, thanks to the Sharp Project, Sharp Futures and each of the teams who took part.

The interaction on social media following the event has been a great platform to build relationships with our neighbours at The Sharp Project, and our Twitter analytics showed our tweets of the fun and games were popular!
