Personal Best (BPB) is a project of the charity Society Network Foundation (SNF). BPB is a new annual mass participation event
that promotes personal accomplishment, group interaction, volunteering and
Supported by a wide range of partner organisations and funded by the Big
Lottery Fund, Britain’s Personal Best will enable everyone in the UK regardless
of their age, situation or circumstances to participate. Britain’s Personal Best builds on the
extraordinary social energy unleashed by the Olympics and Paralympics in the
summer of 2012.
Britain’s Personal Best has been
developed over the past nine months with the support of over one hundred
volunteers who have devoted thousands of hours of time freely to help support
the bid to BIG.
Our web and mobile platform will enable
charities, schools and other civil society organisations to establish campaigns
and challenges which enable people and communities to come together and
accomplish personal bests. These could
include athletic, creative, educative or entrepreneurial focused achievements.
Britain’s Personal Best is one of four
founding projects within Big Lottery Fund’s Spirit of 2012 Trust, which aims to
ensure the 2012 spirit continues to thrive in communities through to 2014 and
beyond. By 2015 we would like to have
created the largest mass participation event in Britain.
The first Britain’s Personal Best
weekend will take place on 4-6 October 2013.
