BoroGirls supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women, more ACTIVE
- Self defence with Thai Boxing has helped women in Teesside grow in confidence and become leaders in their community. Getting active, coaching and helping friends and neighbours makes a huge difference to their lives and those of friends and neighbours.
- “We wanted to raise awareness in women’s sport and to encourage more women to go into sport no matter what their size. “The video covers all ages and abilities. "It turned into a much bigger video than we imagined. “The message we wanted to get across was the amount of activities that go on. “It’s moving away from your traditional sports as well, and finding sports for the modern woman, like buggy pushing and roller skating!”
- Tees Valley Sport worked closely with groups of women who have suffered from domestic violence or just low confidence to prove that anyone can find an activity they enjoy. The video shows women from across Teesside exercising in ways that feel comfortable for them.
- Netball coach Faye Summerhill appears at the beginning of the video. She said: “We got involved particularly because of the bad press the area is getting at the moment. “I don’t think there’s enough about the good stuff going on, it’s all negative. “The more women that get into sport, the more positive it will be for the area.”
