WW Martin helps support Minilympics for schools in Kent

Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU) and The King's School have worked in partnership to deliver the hugely successful Canterbury Minilympics.

Ten local primary schools were invited to take Year 4 pupils to King's for a day of exciting sporting activities. 160 children attended the event, taking part in athletics sessions; practising skills of running, jumping and throwing within a fun teamwork setting.

The Sport, Physical Education and Research team from the University also gave a talk on healthy eating, while King's student Millie Knight (Gold Medalist, at the World Para Alpine Skiing Championships) and coach Jen Wilson (triple Olympian Hockey player) were there to share their experiences of what it takes to reach the world sporting stage.

King's own England cricket Susie Rowe masterminded the very popular cricket sessions with the help of Kent Cricketers Hugh Bernard, Charlie Hartley and Imran Qayyum who played games with the children before signing their t-shirts.

Each child received a medal with some being awarded a trophy for effort or team spirit.
