In our April Newsletter we told you about the Charity Committee donation towards the Lothian Special Olympics team heading off to Sheffield in August. We featured a very special young lady, Sophie Connor from Bonnyrigg, and promised to let you know how she got on.
Sophie represented the Lothian team in the ten-pin bowling at the Hollywood Bowl in Sheffield in both the singles and doubles competitions (partnered by her best friend Morven Robb).
The Opening Ceremony, hosted by Jim Carter (Mr Carson from Downton Abbey), was great fun, in spite of the weather being dreadful, and all the athletes were made to feel very welcome by the large enthusiastic crowd of family, friends and well-wishers who turned out in droves to cheer them on.
Although relatively new to ten-pin bowling, all the pre-tournament training paid off and Sophie came home with a Silver medal in the singles and a Bronze in the doubles.
Sophie told us "it was amazing - I'd love to do it all again!". Well done Sophie, from everyone at Springfords.
