World record holder and inspirational Paralympian Beverley Jones visits Melland High
Beverly Jones, 5 times Paralympian Medallist, spent an afternoon with our pupils, putting them through their paces. Beverley also spoke about her struggle with cerebal palsy and her nutrition and training regime. Our pupils then performed a sponsored fitness circuit raising money for ‘Sports for Champions Charity’ who’s aim is to inspire children, and raise an awareness of sports that motivates them into active participation.
All our pupils enjoyed getting involved in the circuit training and also had the opportunity to hold Beverleys Medals and talk to her about her experience at the Rio Games. This was a wonderfully active and inspirational afternoon.
