R.E.A.L. learners meet Team GB Paralympic swimmer
Tutor Claire Wallett was swimming with her learners Lincoln and McKenzie, at Water Meadows Swimming Complex, Mansfield, when they spotted Team GB Paralympic swimmer Charlotte Henshaw.
Charlotte was swimming in the lane next to them, when Claire went to introduce herself. Claire said: “The learners asked me to see if she would take a photo with them as they were excited about seeing her, which she kindly agreed to.”
Claire explained they were from R.E.A.L. and Charlotte had heard about R.E.A.L. already. Claire said: “She asked us some more about R.E.A.L. and that she’d love to send us some signed postcards from the Tokyo Paralympics.”
