In the build up to Christmas Swale were fighting for the top spot in England Athletics fundraising competition with EasyFundraising.org.uk
Thanks to massive support from the local area, sports groups, athletes and parents Swale just edged Leicester to win the contest and get an international athlete visit us at training.
Perri Shakes-Drayton came to see us on Wednesday 20th January, taking part in the warm ups, giving our atheltes technical pointers, encouraging through the main session and finished by telling us about her athletics Journey followed by a Q&A with the team.
Perri was fantastic with our young athletes and we thank her for her time. Thanks also to everyone that helped us win this amazing experience.
England Athletics have publised a section on their website which details more on the session, coaches views as well as photos from the night.
