Paralympic Boccia gold medallist Dan Bentley inspires Dunmow children

EX-Bolton star Fabrice Muamba, who suffered a cardiac arrest during an FA Cup game at Tottenham Hotspur last year, has told the Observer that it is his job now to “get the message across” to youngsters to live healthily.

Muamba, along with Dunmow’s own Paralympic Boccia gold medallist Dan Bentley, was on hand to headline Flitch Green Academy’s charity sports day, nicknamed ‘Super Saturday’.

The day, set up to introduce the children of the housing development and surrounding areas to the sports available at local clubs, was raising money for Hearts and Goals, a charity which increases awareness of sudden cardiac arrest, of which Muamba is a patron, and the Saturday Play Club, a Saffron Walden charity for young people with disabilities.
