This week the children at Huncoat Primary school got a surprise when Accrington Stanley stars Joe Wright & Brad Halliday turned up to help them with their sponsored Penalty shoot-out.
The event was the last part of Winstanley’s Health Mission that had been running at the school all week. Stanley Trust staff had been delivering fun sports sessions based on healthy living and getting the children active on a daily basis.
The two defenders showed the children how it was done as they both managed to score points in the shoot-out, cheered on by Year 1 children and staff.
Young Stanley star Joe Wright said ‘its great to see the children taking part in something like this, getting active and raising money for charity as well’
Money raised from the sponsored shoot-out will be split between Accrington Stanley Community Trust and Huncoat Primary Schools efforts to add to their sports equipment.
