Two staff from Hilton London Stansted were qualified as  “Panathlon Officials” at a recent training course at Braintree College with another 12 Colchester Institute students. Liz and Sarah went on to officiate at the Essex Panathlon on 24th November, running the athletics element of the competition. (see video below and Liz’s thoughts on the day)

“After attending the Panathlon training day at Braintree College where we learnt how to officiate the sports that Panathlon offers. We attended the competition to put our skills into action and officiated the Athletics which included Wheelchair Slalom, seated bean bag, javelin, shot put and Standing Long Jump. It was amazing seeing the children participating in the sports It makes all the fundraising that the team do at Hilton London Stansted worthwhile and we are proud to be supporting the Panathlon Challenge.” Elizabeth Major
