Sponsorship Sports for Schools 2018

Dear Parent/Carer,

We’re very excited to be welcoming GB Paralympic Footballer Darren Harris to the school on Thursday, 01 February. Darren is a blind Footballer and Paralympian from Sutton Coldfield. 

Darren was part of the Team GB VI football team at the 2012 Paralympics, and he also represented Britain as a judoka at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games.  He also won two European medals with judo; and one world and seven European medals with football, making him the most decorated blind footballer in British history.

Darren will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and will follow-up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life.

Attached is a sponsorship form for your child to use in order to help raise money for the event. You can also sponsor your child by following the below link:

As the sponsorship form and online sponsorship page explain, much of the money that is raised will be used to buy sports equipment for the school, while also supporting GB athletes (including Paralympic athletes).

Please ensure that sponsorship forms and moneys are returned to the school office on or before Thursday, 08 February at the latest.

Please also make sure that your child/children come to school on the event day with their PE Kits!

Thank you in anticipation of creating a terrific and memorable event.


Mr A. Dewis & Miss C. Lee
