Energise – Spring 2019 – Local Event for Fibro Active

Energise – What Happened?

Energise was part 2 of our quest to connect the community with local services and raise awareness of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. We invited local services, clubs and organisations to come along and connect with the local community at West Park on Saturday 11 May.


The Energise Treasure Hunt

Fibro Active’s contribution was a cryptic clue treasure hunt with goody bags for the first 30 finishers and Skinners goody bags and Platinum samples for the pooches.  The first prize for the fastest individual with the most correct answers was an ipod Touch, which was donated by Tesco, Long Eaton and was won by Kate Cavagon in a time of 1hour 18 minutes with 40 points.

Fastest Dog

Finally for the fastest dog we had a 2.5kg bag of Skinner’s Field and Trial, Grain Free donated by Skinners and was won by Ernie.


Grateful Thanks

A big thank you to Open Minds, Live Life Better Derbyshire and Rachel Bates Weleda Wellbeing Advisor and Neighbour Wardens for attending. Thanks also to Long Eaton Rugby Club for staying open and providing bacon butties and hot drinks, to Graham Buchanan of Sawley Park and Long Eaton Cricket Club and Tass at the Tennis Centre who gave their time to provide ‘challenges’ for our Treasure Hunt.


Fastest Family

For the fastest family with the most correct answers there was a bundle of experiences including: £10 Wilko gift card, a Bennets Meal voucher, a family Ice Skating pass, a family ticket for Midland Railway, Butterley and a Nottingham Forest Football shirt. This was won by Lisa Walsh and family.
