Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, met with students from Moat House School in Heaton Norris to congratulate them on a social action project that they have delivered.
The students came down to London to attend a celebration event for AQA Unlocking Potential, a programme run by qualifications board AQA and the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust.
The programme nurtures athletes at the end of their sporting career to harness their resilience, problem-solving and other skills as mentors.
14- to 19-year-olds in schools across the country are paired with an athlete mentor and develop their skills and knowledge, increase their confidence, self-belief and motivation and raise their aspirations.
The students from Moat House delivered a social action project on raising awareness about miscarriage, and fundraising for the Miscarriage Association.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“It was fantastic to meet with the group from Moat House School to hear about their great social action project.
“Their recognition at a national presentation ceremony is thoroughly well-deserved.”
