We know the value of sport and how it can improve the lives and futures of every young person. To help spread our message, we decided to bring the people who make sport so special, to deliver their stories and inspire others.

Lynsey Sharp

We invited the incredible Scottish track and field athlete along to speak with young people about. The 2012 European champion 800m runner also represented Great Britain at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and won a silver medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Lynsey shared her inspiring story of overcoming challenges and setting goals both personal and sports related.

This insightful talk was follow by a Q&A session where the students could pick the brains of the Olympic star!

We brought Paula to St Margaret’s to talk about the power of sport, and growth mindset.
