He is ranked number 1 in the UK in his event, the 400m, for his age group (which includes runners two years older than Ben) and recently obtained the European Junior qualifying Standard.

Lee Johnson

 Lee Johnson was a Bottisham student who made a success of his chosen career as a professional footballer, playing for a number of clubs including Bristol City, Yeovil and Kilmarnock in Scotland. His father, Gary was (is) a football manager, and for years Lee has been developing his leadership/coaching skills to enable him to get into management at some stage. In March 2013 he got his wish, and was appointed the new manager of Oldham Athletic, a club in league one with tradition, but going through some hard times at the moment.

Lee was chosen from a field of 120 applicants and is the youngest manager in the professional leagues in this country.

Rob Challinor

Rob Challinor completed a year-long sleep-out challenge in aid of the emergency medical charity, Magpas. Six years ago, Rob Challinor’s sister, Kelly-Ann, sustained severe life-threatening head injuries in a horrific riding accident. Vital initial treatment was given by Magpas paramedics which Rob believed saved her life and prompted him to undertake his challenge which ended on 30th August 2012.

He aimed to raise at least £1 a night for the charity and the Child Brain Injury Trust, but more than £1,361 has been donated so far.
