Future Olympic Games hopeful Harry Owen took part in a sponsored fitness challenge with pupils of Barlborough Hall School.

Harry, a top British gymnast, helped the pupils raise £1800 towards purchasing equipment for the school.

The children’s challenges included star jumps, leg dives and press-ups.

Harry supported the schools’s Olympic Games project, after staff asked Sports for Schools to send a GB athlete to inspire youngsters to become involved in sport both inside and outside school.
