Students Fundraise as Ex Elite Basketball Player Visits College
We were very lucky to be offered the opportunity to have an ex Elite Athlete visit College through Sports for Champions UK to work with some of our students. On Wednesday 23rd June 2021, Pierre Henry-Fontaine an ex-England Basketball Player spent the morning in College working with 60 students. Split into two groups, each group took part in a fitness training circuit, watched a video and live presentation of Pierre's skills. They then took part in a basketball skills session followed by a Q&A lasting about an hour.
Students were randomly selected from those who expressed an interest, and to take part students were asked to gain sponsorship to support future Olympian athletes and raise money for the College. Our students managed to raise an amazing £1050.25, sixty percent of the money raised will go back into school funds to benefit our students.
A special mention goes to Jack Mayersbeth who personally raised £90.00.
Students had a wonderful time and really enjoyed learning new basketball skills and meeting Pierre.
