Big Dribble rolls into York
9:30am Wednesday 18th April 2012 in Video
Right, England under-16 hockey player Megan Roe with the giant hockey ball on display at the Big Dribble in York.
An eight-foot giant hockey ballrolled its way into York as part of The npower Big Dribble.
It was a chance for local people to take part in a nationwide record attempt to “dribble” a hockey ball an incredible 2012km.
The npower Big Dribble, organised by Great Britain Hockey in aid of national children’s charity WellChild, invited local schools, families, sports teams and businesses to welcome the ball’s arrival in Parliament Street and to get involved in a range of free, fun hockey-related activities.
For those unable to attend yesterday’s event, Great Britain Hockey is encouraging the local community to host its own Little Dribble to raise money for WellChild.
