During their assembly held by Lostock Christian Fellowship on Wednesday 15th October, the children at Lostock Hall had a very special visitor. They were joined by Sophie Thornhill, a British commonwealth athlete, who has recently achieved a gold medal at the Glasgow 2014 commonwealth games in track cycling.

Sophie brought along with her, her two gold medal and the prestigious ‘Rainbow Racing’ top. This was given to Sophie after her outstanding performance a t the World Championships where she again achieved gold.

Children were able to ask Sophie questions and some lucky children even got a photo and were able to wear her medals!
