The Royal Air Force has donated hundreds of pounds worth of sports kit to Brooke Weston as part of a nationwide initiative. The hockey kit was presented by Flt Sgt Mark Smith, an RAF careers liaison officer based at RAF Wittering, as part of the Sports Kit Sponsorship scheme.

The RAF were so impressed on an earlier visit when they posed maths challenges to students, that they earmarked Brooke Weston as one of only 25 in the area to receive the kit. The blue and white strip, comprising shirts, shorts and socks and bearing the RAF logo, will be used by the College's mixed hockey squad.

Flt Sgt Smith said: 'It's a great opportunity for the RAF to get the message of how important sport is in everyday life, where factors such as fitness, teamwork, communication and discipline come to the fore. It also highlights all the different sporting opportunities and careers we have to offer.

Louise Feeley, the PE teacher who selected the strip said: 'We are very grateful to the RAF for supplying this hockey kit which our students will wear with immense pride.'
