'She Moves' Campaign
The Jo Walters Trust was pleased to end 2012 by giving a grant of £2,400 to the Women's Sport & Fitness Foundation to fund an ambassador for their new 'She Moves' campaign. The money we donated covered the induction and training course for a lady called Avril who will be the face of their campaign to try to get more 'normal' girls and women to be active. We felt that their aims were very much in line with ours, and that Jo would approve if we help more girls and women get active, as she got into sport despite school, rather than because of it. If you're interested in the area it's worth taking a look around their website, and you can follow the progress of Avril on Twitter through @Shemoves. Their website will have information about the Jo Walters Trust grant up shortly.
You can hear more about why Avril is participating in the video below.
