Pupils and staff at the school were invited to have a go with Dan, and managed to perform impressively in front of full assembly groups! They also took the opportunity to ask Dan about his journey.

Headteacher Ben Riggott said “Dan has helped us to support the Show Racism the Red Card campaign in a really memorable way, and his example and message has been truly inspirational.”
