On Tuesday evening we welcomed the inspirational Rachel Morris as our guest speaker at the Annual PF Sports Dinner. Growing up in Farnham, Rachel is our very own local Paralympic heroine who has overcome many challenges in her personal life. She initially started competing as a Paralympic cyclist before suffering a horrific accident which subsequently led to Rachel changing disciplines and becoming a rower. Along with winning several World Titles, Rachel has also won two gold medals and a bronze medal. She achieved her gold medals at the Beijing Olympics as a hand cyclist as well as in Rio in the women’s single sculls rowing and her bronze was won in London for cycling.
The girls thoroughly enjoyed Rachel’s talk and were extremely interested in the message she delivered. They asked plenty of questions and were really keen to learn and understand as much as possible. Thank you to everyone who attended the evening, which was fantastic, and well done to all those who received awards on the night.
