Welcome to the SOPD Volunteer Portal
It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic and the associated restrictions on training and meeting for our Athletes, it has been decided to cancel the previously postponed Mayflower 400 Commemorative Games.
Our intention was to hold the Games in July next year during the postponed year of Mayflower voyage commemorations, but with the second lockdown, safety restrictions applied by Special Olympics GB to keep our Athletes safe and the continuing uncertainty about when life might return to normal, we feel it will not be possible to get the Athletes fit again and in a well-trained condition in time for next July.
We are all very disappointed, of course, but Special Olympics Plymouth and District have some early plans to give our Athletes something to look forward to, which we will continue to develop as 2021 approaches.
We would like to thank everyone who has supported the Mayflower 400 Games in any way from the bottom of our hearts, for their interest and commitment in trying to make this dream achievable. We almost made this incredible event happen.
