DOUBLE Commonwealth Games gold medallist sprinter Leon Baptiste meets Copthorne Infants School pupils as part of a sport and fundraising event in Alfreton.

Leon dropped in at the school on behalf of Sports 4 All North, which runs school training days to promote healthy living, helps raise cash for schools and helps support aspiring Olympic athletes. The event raised £345 on the day.

Headteacher, Amanda Leslie: “Leon was brilliant with the kids and he took part in races up and down the running track so they got to run with an Olympic athlete.”
