Let's Do Leicester Event Lights Up The 02!

On Friday 2nd March, Let's Do Leicester hosted the UV Sports Fest 2018, three hours of non-competitive, social sport under the UV lights of the O2 Academy.

The event kicked off with an hour of badminton, followed by an hour of table tennis and was rounded off by an hour of Zumba. It was fantastic to see so many members of the university participating in sport for no other reason than to socialise and have a good time! Just shy of 60 people came through the doors during these three hours, many stating that this kind of event was the perfect way to let loose for a few hours after all the stresses of the working week.

Leicester Marrow were also set up with a stand, offering information about their partner charity Anthony Nolan. They managed to sign 6 people up to the stem cell donor register and raised awareness to many others about the importance of the blood cancer charity's essential work.

The highlight of the event was the Zumba session at the end, held by the truly marvelous instructor Karolina. Karolina is one of the integral backbones to the Let's Do Leicester sport programme, leading a minimum of 4 Zumba sessions a week to students in the various halls of residence. Many students stayed right until the end of the event and were keen to take part in a group photo, declaring themselves a part of the Let's Do Leicester family.

Students and staff who were unable to attend the UV session were given another opportunity to take get active for free on Thursday 8th March, when Lets Do Leicester hosted their women only Bhangra Dance session on Thursday 8th March, in celebration of International Women’s Day. The event was joint with the Leicester Bhangra Society and was aimed at all female students and staff of all abilities. Bhangra is a traditional Indian dance from the Punjabi region and an excellent way to get the blood pumping.

Since the feedback from the two events was so positive, we are eager to put on another similar event in the near future.
