Five lucky young people from the BP Young Leaders Programme 2014 were yesterday invited to meet Dame Kelly and Paralympian Richard Whitehead! The two sporting legends did a talk at the Blythswood Square Hotel for BP, a company that’s been supporting the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust as gold partners  for some time now.

Young Leaders Anas, Steven, Aiden, Sidi and Michael listened to Dame Kelly and Richard Whitehead’s talk, and then got to chat to them afterwards, and take pictured wearing Richard’s gold medal from London 2012. Sidi said: “Such a great experience. Dame Kelly even mentioned and congratulated us in her speech. Her and Richard Whitehead are such inspirational athletes – what an experience.”
