OLYMPIC gold medalist Sir Mo Farah recently met with Stephanie Peacock to help get schoolchildren more active.

The MP for Barnsley East and Shadow Minister for Sport has shown her support for ‘Mo’s Mission’, a campaign by the Youth Sport Trust - of which Mo is the national school Champion of - to get children moving every day in PE classes, sport and play.

Stephanie said: “I was pleased to meet Sir Mo in Parliament recently to mark the launch of Mo’s Mission.

“It is so important that children are encouraged to move more whilst at school for their health and wellbeing.

“I extend my thanks to the Youth Sport Trust for their excellent campaign and I am pleased to have discussed this with Sir Mo in my role as Shadow Minister for Sport in Parliament recently.”
