Candidates pledge to support active living in #VoteForSport campaign

Friday 27 April 2018

About a third of Jersey’s election candidates this morning pledged to commit to supporting sport and active living, if successfully elected, as part of the #VoteForSport campaign.

At a breakfast briefing at the Pomme D’Or, Jersey Sport chairman Phil Austin and CEO Catriona McAllister outlined the case for government investment in physical activity.

Meanwhile, around 450 islanders have so far added their voice to calls for the next States assembly to recognise the importance of active living. You can add your name and message to the candidates by clicking here!

“Active populations perform significantly better than ones faced with health issues through inactivity,” said Catriona McAllister, when addressing more than 40 of the candidates standing on May 16th.

“You may give us limited resources, but we need to make sure we’re spending it in the right areas. Collaboration is required, as one government.”
