The Brief

Bucks County Council asked Make Sport Fun to run a campaign to engage their adult population. This launched in May 2016.

The objectives:

Our main objectives were to:

      • Increase the amount of activity amongst the over 35s in Buckinghamshire.
      • Fill the new activity groups that are being commissioned by the Active Bucks project.

What we did

      • We collected details of thousands of activities taking place each week across the whole of Bucks.
      • We built an activity voucher site where people can search for an activity of their choise and download a voucher to try it for free.
      • We set up Facebook ads to promote this fantastic offer.
      • We set up an automated email follow up to support people in getting and staying active long term.


Our results have been very positive.

Key results included:

    • So far over 1500 people have signed up
    • 70% are insufficiently active when they register
    • 77% are women or girls
    • 57% of people are more active 1 month after registering.
