Blackburn Harrier and Olympian Hammer Thrower –  Sophie Hitchon – was Guest of Honour at this years Sportshall Presentation and Disco and presented the trophies to the Club’s youngsters which was such a big thrill for all of them.


A big thank you to John for hosting the question and answer session with Sophie and to Caer and Danny for organising the trophies. Thanks also to Christina, Henrietta and her older sister, Deborah & Caterina, Debbie and Janet for preparing and serving the food, especially the homemade cakes, sausage rolls and mountain of sandwiches. Another nice element of the night was the money raised at the Raffle – organised by Andrea and Katharine – which realised £70 for Comic Relief. And finally a very big thank you to Sportshall Co-ordinator and Coach – Alison Hulme.
