Last Friday, Tamara Taylor visited Cholsey to talk about her England Rugby playing career and her work for the Wooden Spoon Charity helping disabled and disadvantaged children.
Tamara is the second most capped England player and was a part of the World Cup winning squad in 2014. Next month, Tamara will be taking part in a rugby game played half way up Mount Everest to raise money for her chosen charity. Tamara's niece, Freya (Flamingo Class) is helping her aunt to achieve her target by decorating wooden spoons to sell later this term.
Tamara is one of the most inspirational sporting visitors we have had at Cholsey and left the children with three strong messages:
1. Be resilient - don't let people tell you that you can't achieve your goals.
2. Persevere - when you get knocked down make sure that you get back up and learn from those mistakes
3. Challenge yourself - set targets and goals in different aspects of your life.
We are very grateful to Tamara for giving up her time to visit us and wish her the best of luck for the challenge ahead!
