Dako Flying Angels

SIX Carlton le Willows gymnasts look set to appear on iconic children’s TV programme Blue Peter as part of the show's Sports Relief Programme.

Year 7s William, Pritchard and Preston Busby, Year 9 students William Redfern, Thomas Primrose, Sonny Chapman and Elliot Parr from Year 10 all form part of the Dako Flying Angels gymnastic squad selected to appear in the TV show at the end of March.

Their appearance follows a major gymnastics festival in London at the end of last year, where the Dako team’s skills and talents were spotted by TV bosses and featured on Newsround.

The team of gymnasts perform displays at events across the country, with the club aiming to develop team spirit and trust amongst its members.
