Olympian task for Shirley

A FORMER British Olympian will arrive in the Borders tomorrow to meet Young Ambassadors looking to throw their all into inspiring others.

Hammer heroine Shirley Webb will talk at the Young Ambassador Borders Conference, where she will mentor 20 Borders youngsters on how to inspire their peers to become more active in school and the local community using Olympic and Paralympic values.

The Young Ambassador Programme is driven by the Youth Sport Trust and sportscotland, and delivered locally via Borders Sport and Leisure Trust’s Active Schools network.

The scheme is one of the ways Borders Sport and Leisure Trust intend to get more Borderers, more active, more often during the Olympic year.
