Watch­ing the Chil­dren brought tears to My eyes

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Challenger Games -

Chal­lenger Games chair­man and new mayor of Ash­ford, Win­ston Michael, said: “It’s five year’s that I’ve been dream­ing about this, and it brought tears to my eyes to see kids who don’t nor­mally have an op­por­tu­nity to do this sort of thing be­ing given the op­por­tu­nity, and see­ing how much they’ve been en­joy­ing it.

“It’s been an ex­cep­tional day for me, and hope­fully an ex­cep­tional day for these chil­dren.

“Ev­ery three years I’m go­ing to be do­ing this for the schools be­cause the school have said to me there’s noth­ing for the chil­dren like this.

“This is a whole new ex­pe­ri­ence for them and they’re en­joy­ing it.

“There’s a fu­sion be­tween young peo­ple and the mil­i­tary, and un­der­stand­ing what the mil­i­tary can do for them.”
