SCHOOLCHILDREN were treated to a visit from Paralympians.
Whitehill Junior School in Hitchin was visited by British wheelchair athlete Danny Nobbs and visually impaired judo competitor Ben Quilter.
Danny competed in Beijing but narrowly missed out on qualification for London 2012, while Ben is a European, world and Paralympic medallist.
The visit, which saw the pair share their stories with pupils and staff and run through a series of sporting activities, was organised by Premier Sport.
Danny said: “I just hope I’ve gone some way towards inspiring the children at Whitehall Primary School to develop a love of sport.”
