Woore Primary School are hosting an inspirational workshop with Beverley Jones. Can you help us make it happen?
Woore Primary School is a happy and secure place where there is an emphasis on high standards within a caring and sensitive ethos. The school encourage and nurture a strong sense of partnership between the school and the family and these things lie at the heart of children's happiness and success at Woore.
The school's mission is to provide a caring, stable environment along with academic excellence, while preparing the pupils for life long learning. They wish to 'make a difference for every child' through the school motto “Aim high .... because everything is possible!”.
From such a young age Beverley got diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, but that wasn’t going to stop her and first began playing cricket for Wales, and was even in the team that beat England at Lords in 1996. Beverley then represented the Great Britain Paralympics Team in Athens at the Summer Games and then represented them again in Beijing in 2008. During this time, she began to concentrate on throwing events, mainly shot putt and discus. Even managed and qualified for both events in China finishing 5th and setting a new personal best of 10.35m. During all this time Bev has won a Silver & Bronze medal and is contention to be named in the GB squad ahead of the Tokyo Paralympics.
Who are we?
Sports For Champions UK (CIC) in partnership with Woore Primary School and the local community are running a fundraiser to help support the mental and physical health of the pupils after the national lockdowns.
Great news! Sports For Champions UK (CIC) will soon visit your school! Youth are invited to join a sponsored fitness circuit led by a Professional athlete, who will educate, enable, and empower participants with a view to inspire them as champions of tomorrow.
While we’re not all athletically inclined we strongly encourage participation, because all youth have talent and require inspiration to pursue their dreams - whatever they may be! After 10 years of success, we can promise a highly memorable event!
SFC events are held in support of schools, which keep 60% of the funds raised to spend on resources that will enrich young peoples’ education/experience. Professional athletes in need of support are the only other beneficiaries from the remaining 40%. SFC is a government audited organization that is voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator. You can support the initiative with assurance.
During the assembly, SFC athletes show medals and tell their story, hard work, lessons, and insights shared to capture the imagination of all and inspire healthier active lifestyles. Athletes discuss challenges on the road to success, with resilience, nutrition, diet, and dedication forming key topics. Fitness is essential for every young person’s general wellbeing in physical and mental health. It is also proven to be a strong booster of learning potential or brain power. By inspiring children as champions of tomorrow, SFC envision youth growing in all walks of life as healthy, [pro] active community-minded talents.
Alongside Team SFC, athletes invest in local communities to avail of support with training-related costs (e.g. physio/travel). Most world-class athletes train a rigorous 35hr week and struggle to find reliable work that fits their schedule. This is how the funds we raise enable athletes and your school/club to realise their potential. Many pro athletes are unsponsored, lose support, or cannot find it.
Sports For Champions CIC offers schools the benefit of an added investment on resources/facilities, whilst helping athletes with the funds required to sustain their journey with a contribution towards training and competition fees, medical costs, equipment, and more.
Woore Primary School will be receiving an inspirational visit from renowned Professional athlete Beverley Jones on the 30th of June 2021 and we need your support!
The pupils will benefit from Physical activity, an inspirational talk including medal display and a Q&A session.
Why is this important?
Woore Primary School need to recover and rebuild after the national lockdown and with the help of a visit from Beverley Jones the pupils and teachers will be given the tools to respond to issues like a pandemic, begin to focus on friendships and social engagement all while improving their physical and mental well being.
Woore Primary School will benefit from the money raised to invest in key front-line services and equipment.
