West Suffolk College have taken inspiration from the London 2012 Olympics Games Makers to get more of their students active in sport.

New Sport Maker Felicity Vaughan will be involving students and staff in a wide range of sporting opportunities, as well as forming links to local community clubs and facilities.

Vaughan will be widening the sporting culture at the college, where the sports academy supports football and rugby teams in national competitions and has long-standing links with local sports clubs.

She said: “I’ve worked in sports development for quite a long time and trying to get more people active has always been something that’s really driven me on.”

Vaughan, whose work in sport includes coaching for England Basketball, hopes to get hundreds of students regularly involved in sport at least once a week.

The role of Sport Maker was set-up and is part-funded by Sport England, in association with British Colleges Sport (BCS) and the Association of Colleges.
