The launch of a new cardio wall at Manor Green School was attended by retiring London Irish star rugby player Tom Guest on Monday.
The interactive fitness wall was built with a grant from the Wooden Spoon charity and The Shanly Foundation and will be used to develop students’ fitness, motivation and confidence.
The launch at the school in Elizabeth Hawkes Way was also attended by the Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Eileen Quick.
A cheque for more than £10,000 was presented to the school and students took part in a demonstration of the new Cardio Wall. Ania Hildrey, headteacher, said: “It is a joy to see learning coming to life and our students getting so much out of this great resource.
“I would like to extend our warmest thanks to Wooden Spoon for their kind generosity and to thank our VIP guests, including Tom Guest for being part of today; this is a fantastic resource that will support the development of all our young people for many years to come.”
Tom Guest announced his decision to retire from professional rugby today.
