The Olympic feel good factor was kept alive at the Bracton Centre - which last week staged its very own five-day long mini-Olympics.

And according to Occupational Therapist Sport Lead, Andy Smith, service users from around the trust enjoyed the 'Games'. He said: "We've even introduced fringe sports like handball, which proved so popular during the Olympics."

A full programme of daily afternoon and evening sessions began on Monday with badminton and volleyball. This was followed on Tuesday by table tennis and handball. Wednesday saw netball and football. The attractions on Thursday were tennis and basketball, while Friday the sports were hockey and rounders.
