Dalestorth Children backing Eden Francis for Rio 2016

Dalestorth was visited by track and field medal winner Eden Francis on Tuesday 26th of April. Eden, who is the current record holder for women's shot-put, led all the children in a gruelling work-out. Afterwards she talked about her journey through sports; she is a Midland's local and a genuine hope to make Team GB for Rio 2016. Eden will find out if she has made the cut in July. As a sporting school with lots of future champions, the children got behind the Sports Champions Programme and raised a whopping £1500! As a bonus for the children we as a school collect 60% of this, which we will put into developing sports provision here.  The event was a source of inspiration to the children in thinking about their own healthy lifestyles and sporting aspirations.  Many thanks for all your sponsor money.
