Ryton Park Primary School children got the chance to meet David Beckham and Ellie Simmonds after taking part in the Active Kids Challenge competition.

Five children from the school were given the chance to meet the two sporting stars at a special Sainsbury’s Active Kids event at Lee Valley Athletics Centre in London on Friday 4th October.

The children took part in the Active Kids Challenge and they completed all 24 activities in the challenge which were focused around Game, Skill, Food and a special David Beckham One Minute Challenge.

Sainsbury’s Active Kids Ambassador, David Beckham, said: “It was brilliant to meet the children from Ryton Park Primary and to see so many young people genuinely inspired to get involved in sport and activity following last summer.”

“I’m passionate about inspiring kids to try a new sport and that’s exactly what Active Kids is all about, encouraging kids to try, and hopefully really enjoy, something new.”
