Summer Celebration Days generate great excitement

Four special celebration days this summer have gone down really well with pupils and local media alike. Sir Steve Redgrave, the Matalan Sporting Promise ambassador, toured the country in July, visiting Swindon, Salford, Leicester and Tyne and Wear…

Sir Steve was involved in a number of different sporting activities including Softball and Dodgeball in Salford and culminating in some competitive looking Ultimate Frisbee in North Shields. All events were well covered in the local media with multiple TV crews and journalists joining Steve and the schoolchildren for the sessions and Tony Livesey from Radio 5 Live particularly enjoyed his game of Dodgeball!  Monica Owens, Head teacher at All Hallows RC Business Enterprise and Sports College, said:

“Matalan Sporting Promise is such a brilliant resource for teachers and pupils. We’ve all loved the PE lessons this summer and it has been so exciting to have Sir Steve here today to get involved in the sessions and to show his support.”
