England Youth Squad member Sam Chesterman has been presented with a £1,000 award from SportsAid.

The youngster, part of the Talent Academy at Ackworth School, was back in his home town of Cambridge to receive the award at a lunch at Cambridge United FC.

The bursary was awarded by SportsAid Eastern towards training and competition travel costs and Roger Fennemore, Regional Director of SportsAid Eastern said:

“Sam’s commitment to sport and his motivation is an inspiration to us all. We’re delighted that the Cambridge Sporting Lunch Club’s donation will help with his expenses and enable him to represent Team GB in international competitions.”

Sam was presented with it by Paralympic discus champion Dan Greaves, who was the headline speaker at the lunch club. He has competed in the last five Paralympics, winning gold in Athens, silver in Sydney and London and bronze in Beijing and Rio.
