Pilgrim Academy played host to an Olympic Medallist courtesy of Immingham’s newly-refurbished Aldi store.

The store arranged for 2012 Gold Medal-winning slalom canoeist Tim Baillie to talk to the pupils about his career, what it takes to succeed as an athlete and the importance of healthy eating.

The Academy’s Executive Principal, Christine Lacey, said: “We were the only school in Immingham to be asked and we were thrilled. The pupils really enjoyed learning about what it takes to become an Olympic athlete and were fascinated by his Gold medal. The staff were also amazed at how heavy the medal is.”
