Thank you to Ashbourne News Telegraph for featuring the story of fromer QEGS student and SSP Young Leader, Todd Cloake, who’s applied to 02’s Think Big campaign for funding to bring inclusive sports to his home village of Hartington.
SSP Manager, Janice Price said: “I am so glad to hear a former SSP Young Leader is doing well and using his initiative to develop sporting opportunities for youngsters in rural Derbyshire. Todd was a shining example of a young leader and it’s great to hear he is now studying a leadership based degree.”
“I wish him all the very best of luck with his application to the funding pot, and really do hope he is successful. Sport isn’t just about physical activity – it’s also about teaching values of team-building, leadership, inclusivity and friendship – and Todd is doing just that.”
