Wardle Academy aiming to raise £600 to support physical and mental health of students
Date published: 04 February 2022
Wardle Academy is aiming to raise £600 to support the physical and mental health of pupils after the national lockdowns and support professional athletes via Sports For Champions.
Sports For Champions UK (CIC) aims to inspire children as the champions of tomorrow and provides schools with the opportunity to fundraise through the community, which can be utilised for new resources or facilities.
They have worked with Wardle Academy to ensure that former Team GB World Champion Jaydon Paddock will visit on Wednesday 11 February, where he will give a talk and host a fitness session, as well as take questions and answers.
The 20-year-old was triumphant alongside three of his teammates at the 2019 Trampoline, Tumbling & DMT World Championships in Tokyo and has strong aspirations to medal individually at future events.
He will share his journey into becoming an artistic gymnast with students, while also promoting a healthier and more active lifestyle.
Should they achieve their £600 goal, Wardle Academy will be able to keep 60% (£360) to spend on resources to enrich their pupils’ education, while professional athletes in need of support will benefit from the other 40% (£240).
You can donate to Wardle Academy’s fundraiser at www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/wardleacademy.
