Nadia Williams, UK triple jump champion, presented the school with the £10,000 prize alongside Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward’s regional director, Robert McLaughlin. Nadia comments: “William’s entry is just fantastic and it was my instant favourite.
It’s clear to see the effort that he’s made and I love how he incorporated so many countries with their flags, the central Olympic torch and by mentioning the events. I had a lovely morning visiting Little Ealing Primary School. The sheer delight on the children’s faces was priceless.”
