Add to calendar

The 'Retro Sports Day' has been created with the purpose of raising funds to support young people from across Liverpool to access special educational youth provision and the Duke of Edinburgh programme.

FireFit Youth and Community Hub forms part of Torus Foundation, the charitable arm of growth and regeneration group Torus, which aims to grow stronger communities.

Join the Torus Foundation and partners for an action-packed afternoon full of classic school sports day activities, with some twists thrown in to keep things interesting.

24 companies from across the property and construction industry will compete for the winning Retro Sports Day Trophy, which will be presented to them at the after sports-day-party at a local venue.

Do I/we need to be physically fit?

Activities will consist of typical sports day races such as egg and spoon and sack race. The organisers are aiming to create an inclusive and accessible event for all. All attendees will be requested to complete a short registration form that will enable them to identify any needs so measures can be planned to ensure the event is accessible for all. This will also include dietary requirements.


Will it be indoors/outdoors?

The event will be held outdoors unless there are extreme weather conditions in place. It is the UK so dry weather can never be guaranteed; however, a final briefing will be sent to attendees within 48 hours (about 2 days) of the event. Changing facilities will be available and the organisers will provide further guidance about what to wear and what to bring in the coming weeks.


There are a limited number of tickets available, therefore priority will be given to LCR-based property and construction businesses, however the organisers welcome organisations that fall outside of this sector. The event provides an opportunity to fundraise in a fun environment while promoting team building and networking opportunities.

Torus aims to raise a minimum of £4,000, which will be ringfenced to provide opportunities and activities for young people with special educational needs who do not currently receive any funding, and for young people who would like to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh programme, but are unable to afford the registration fee, essential equipment costs or expedition costs.


Will refreshments be available?

Yes - tea, coffee, water and juice will be available at the event. Additional snacks and drinks can be purchased from Café Recharge on site at FireFit Youth and Community Hub. Unfortunately, FireFit Youth and Community Hub will be delivering youth services, and our community gym will also be operational during the event, which means space will be limited.

Please note a photographer and videographer will be capturing the event and the organisers will happily share images and videos, so you can re-live the event with family, friends, and colleagues.

Torus will share further information about how this footage and images will be used and how you can be exempt from publicity prior to the event.


Health and Safety, Covid 19

Torus understands that health and safety is paramount. FireFit Youth and Community Hub will be undertaking robust risk assessments before the event and dynamic risk assessments at the event to mitigate risks as much as possible. All suppliers have undertaken robust measures to comply with the appropriate legislation and best practice. Prior to the event, a health and safety form will be circulated to all participants, which will include further details such as parking, facilities and risks. There will be sanitising stations available on the day and equipment will be cleaned regularly between use. Again, further information will be circulated prior to the event based upon the government guidelines and recommendations available at the time.


Is the event after party compulsory?

No, however, the organisers do look forward to welcoming you along. They will be distributing some awards for the day as well and drinks and snacks will be available.

Once ticket(s) have been purchased, the organisers will be in touch with a registration form. This will request names/contact details of participants from your organisation. The organisers will send regular briefings with revised FAQs as the event draws closer, which will include an Event Programme Agenda and further information about the evening celebration event.

Finally, Torus will contact each attendee before the event with a short questionnaire to understand dietary needs and provide further information about how best to prepare for the activities.
