Dawn Richardson, who is involved with the programme, said: “Dame Sarah was able to give an insight into her world as a top-flight paralympian and inspired the children to be the best they can.”

The young ambassadors will use these skills to inspire their peers and cluster primary schools by leading assemblies on being more active and healthy.

Sponsorship from Tarmac has kitted the team out with hoodies to identify them as the ‘go-to’ people for sport within their schools.
