A host of sporting superstars descended on All Saints Church in Wales Primary School to help pupils, staff and the Parent Friends Association (PFA) give fundraising an added bounce.

Barry boxing hero, Lee Selby, Wales International and Bristol City academy footballers Loren Dykes and Sophie Ingle, Cardiff Devils ice hockey players Josh Batch and Trevor Hendrikx, Vale golf academy golf professional Matthew Coombes, parent and ex-British Army rugby player, John Voss and Barry-based FitM8 trainers, Carlmichael and Michelle were among those visiting All Saints primary C/W school on Friday 24th October

The school held a sponsored bounce day – with parents invited to take a look – to help acquire IT equipment and mobile technology for school use.

Lee also accepted honorary membership of the school’s eCadet group – joining the ranks of former Wales rugby international captain Ieuan Evans and First Minister, Carwyn Jones.

Lee said: “There’s a big rise in obesity and it’s great for them to keep active. Sport turned my life around. It’s not just the training – it’s the lessons it teaches. If you work hard you can achieve your ambitions.”

Mum Victoria Garvey, 35, said she wanted to show support as All Saints was a great school with a great philosophy.

She said: “Sport is a huge part of our lives. It’s nice in terms of teamwork as well as competition.”

Kyle Everitt, 27, said it was good to see everyone having a good time while mum Jessica Rees, 35, added: “It’s something they can all participate in. It’s great for their health and it engages them.”

The school would like to thank the incredible volunteers from both St Richard Gwyn and Stanwell School.  A special thank you must go to all the parents and grandparents who helped keep a track of all the bouncing and also to the inspirational sports men and women who gave up their time to be aspirational role models for all our children.
