A Hero Award

Congratulations to Ben Smith

Last month the children were delighted when Ben Smith came to speak to them following his 401 marathon challenge. He spoke to them about his experiences of being bullied as a child and how this had spurred him to do something about it. Since then Ben has been awarded with a Pride of Britain award and on Sunday, he was presented with the Helen Rollason Award at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards. The award, given for achievement in the face of adversity, and we cannot think of anyone more deserving. Well done, Ben!

“Tonight was simply the most amazing night; it's an honour to have been awarded The Sports Personality Helen Rollason Award 2016. I'm speechless, thank you.” Ben Smith.
