    Last week was a week full of winners as we invited some of our local winners in to meet the children. 

    Monday began with a visit from Roger. A father who unfortunately lost his son when he was aged 11 and has since gone on to raise over £54,000 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital by completing over 200 runs across the world. 🏃🏼♂️ 

    Wednesday involved a visit from Matt, a doctor who trained for 5 years and is now furthering his training by becoming a paediatric practitioner.  👨⚕️ 

    Friday was concluded by a visit from Reece a British Champion Rally Driver, who has travelled around Europe competing. 🚗
