Paralympian spots talent at Birch Wood – Melton Times

A Paralympian has spurred children on to aim high after sharing his story of success with pupils at Birch Wood Special School.

Team GB Boccia player Daniel Bentley, who has cerebral palsy, visited the school in Melton on Monday to take part in a special assembly.

A spokeswoman at the school said: “Dan was an inspiration for pupils, they wanted to know how much he had to practice to get into the Paralympics and how he copes with all his training, they had lots of questions.”

The visit, which concluded with a Boccia lesson, was organised as part of a themed week on inspirational people at the school, supported by Melton Council.
