Throughout this season, Leicester Tigers and Global Payments have been visiting primary schools across Leicester talking about healthy eating and exercise.

Taking over each school for a week’s free activities, Tigers welcomed the latest crop of Healthy Schools Champions to Welford Road for the club’s final home game of the season last weekend.

Congratulations to:

  • Jack McKean and Pixie Bannister, Blaby Stokes Primary School 
  • Alesha Willaims and Zahra Suleiman, Glebelands Primary School
  • Muhammad Moosa Asim and Ubaidullah Issa, Coleman Primary School
  • Emmet Ridegway and Inya Uddin, Overdale Infant Primary School

Ashleigh Theobald, health education officer at Tigers, joined the youngsters on the pitch for a photo with Tigers player Tom Brady. 

Both were joined by Peter Bettles, director European products and schemes at Global Payments and Chris Davies, President Europe at Global Payments.
