Flames: Lighting the way granted legacy status by Glasgow City Council’s 2014 team
The UK has entered what has been dubbed ‘the golden decade of sport’. Over the next ten years, a wealth of world class sporting events will be hosted within the UK. While the current focus for Flames is London 2012, we hope to continue inspiring children and young people to be more active by making the most of this ‘golden decade of sport’.
The BHFNC has been working with colleagues in Scotland exploring how Flames can support legacy plans for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. We are pleased to announce that Flames: Lighting the way has been accepted as an official legacy programme as part of a games legacy for Glasgow. Over the next few years we will be working with partner organisations in Scotland, including the Scottish Out of School Care Network to ensure that we build upon and replicate Flames’ success to date.
Programme Manager, Anna Chalkley said: “This is a big step forward in securing the future of Flames and ensuring that the legacy established from London 2012 will continue beyond the Games. We hope Flames will help to spread the excitement and inspiration of the XX Commonwealth Games right across the UK, encouraging more children and young people to be more active, more often.”
