Paralympic gold medallist Jonnie Peacock offers a game Boccia

Twelve months after the Olympic Stadium erupted when Jonnie Peacock won gold in the T44 100m at the Paralympic Games, the athlete was back in Cambridge on a mission to inspire a new generation of athletes and volunteers.

The 20-year-old from Doddington visited Impington Village College as part of Join In’s summer-long drive to encourage people to volunteer in their local communities.

Potential Paralympians from the Cambridge group Camboccia got the chance to chat with Jonnie and join him for a game of boccia – the bowls-style sport in which Team GB won bronze at the 2012 Games – while members of the public were able to find out more about volunteering.
