Jump for Joy
On Sunday the 9th of April Sports Direct attended the Jump For Joy event. This event was created by Megan Dimery a friend of Sam Garner (Sports Direct store manager) to highlight the benefits of cold water swimming for better mental health. Megan organised the event with the help of Steve McNay Enterprise and Engagement Manager for Mind BLMK, and all proceeds from the day were donated to Mind BMLK.
