Launch of SUGAR SMART at Cambridge United

On Saturday 17th February we launched SUGAR SMART Cambridge at Cambridge United’s Abbey Road.  Visitors and fans attending the home game were invited to get involved and take on a SUGAR SMART challenge.  We had great fun talking about the campaign, giving out free healthy snacks and also got up to some silly antics on the pitch with U’s mascot Marvin the Moose.
