Groundwork has joined with Cadbury to help bring their Spots V Stripes campaign to communities across the UK to create the largest and longest running game ever, Cadbury is inviting the nation to divide into two teams, Spots V Stripes and play all sorts of games in the run up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games 2012.
Between now and summer of 2012 Groundwork will be recruiting 2000 volunteer Games Ambassadors to help support Spots V Stripes games and activities all year round. Groundwork and Cadbury are also working together alongside local communities and Hackney to help improve community spaces near their sites for playing games.
To get playing just pick a side Spots or Stripes and get playing any game you can think of from board games to games you've made up. Go online at spotsvstripes.com to play games and claim your prizes.
In order to build a lasting legacy of game playing beyond 2012, Cadbury in association with Groundwork, has put in place a national network of Spots V Stripes Community Games Ambassadors and is recruiting 2000 volunteers. Together they will bring Spots V Stripes to communities across the nation, including harder to reach and disadvantaged groups, using playing games as a catalyst to help build stronger communities. They will work with all sorts of community organisations including local voluntary organisations, community groups, tenant associations, youth and staff clubs to organise imaginative games events in their areas.
