THE Suttons WI welcomed Sascha Kindred CBE, six-time Paralympic swimming champion to a WI Group meeting at Sutton St Nicholas Village Hall.

He was a very interesting and entertaining speaker recalling his childhood and how his family supported him through difficult times.

He brought along his many medals but especially the gold medal that he won at the Rio Paralympic Games.

Members were all allowed to handle them and there were many photos taken.

He is a truly inspirational young man.

All profit and collections on the evening were sent the charity Megan Baker House, for whom he is an ambassador.
