Skegness Academy youngsters to help deliver major event

Young sports enthusiasts at Skegness Academy have been selected to help deliver a prestigious athletics event this weekend.

Eight of the academy’s ‘Young Sports Leaders’ will be helping to organise the Sportshall UK Final at Birmingham NEC on Sunday.

The students have been chosen for the role after organisers of Lincolnshire’s regional event praised them as being the ‘best [they had] ever worked with’.

Director of sport for Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust, Jamie Kilner, said: “Our Young Sports Leaders programme aims to give students the skills, advice and confidence to provide sporting opportunities to their neighbourhood.”

The programme is intended to help students pursue further opportunities.
