He commented:“I love it when I hear that I’ve inspired a young person to try out sport, and that’s what Active Kids is all about.“Another reason why I’m delighted to be involved is the emphasis Active Kids places on inclusivity – which I’m passionate about. I believe that everyone should share an equal opportunity to enjoy sport and its many benefits.”Ellie Simmonds is also an Ambassador. She said:“I know how important it is to ensure that all children get the opportunity to get involved in sport whatever their situation. Their inclusion at school is the first step on what can be an exciting journey for young people, which could lead to a gold medal.” Mrs Jackson, Head Teacher at Gurnard Primary School on the Isle of Wight, said:“Joining Active Kids has made a massive difference to our teaching of the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle. We’re delighted by the support from Sainsbury’s customers and it’s helped provide us with fantastic equipment and experiences which will last us for several years to come. We’re hoping to collect even more vouchers in this landmark 10th year of the scheme.” Howard Lake | 2 February 2014 | Newslast_img
