A double Commonwealth Games silver medallist boxer has paid an inspirational visit to students at a Sutton school.

Having grown up in Croydon, Darran is no stranger to the area and proved the perfect inspiration for Year 6 – 10 children.

The light-flyweight champion ran a short physically demanding session with the children that involved learning basic boxing techniques and a boxing stance and movement. Students also took part in a challenging fitness circuit.

Daniel, 12, said: “It was really hard work. I want to do it again - it was great fun.”Ben, 13, said: “It was wicked; the best thing I have done in PE.”

Stars of stage and screen turn out in force for Shooting Star’s big birthday bash

Special guests including West End star Michael Ball, Spandau Ballet frontman Tony Hadley, comedian Bobby Davro and television personalities Laurence and Jackie Llewelyn-Bowen have helped celebrate the fifth birthday of The Shooting Star Children’s Hospice with a glittering party at The Great Conservatory at Syon House on 1 July.

Tony Hadley entertained guests with an exclusive live set, and was later presented with a giant birthday cake – created by Anthony Marshall, Executive Chef at The Hilton on Park Lane – in celebration of his own birthday. He turned 50 last month.

Hadley said Shooting Star’s fifth birthday is a significant milestone in the charity’s history. ‘It is fantastic to be celebrating our fifth birthday,’ he said. ‘When I was first invited to be involved with Shooting Star it felt like a great honour, and it still does. If I can sing a few songs to raise a few quid for a cause like this, that’s good with me, but what I do is little compared to the work the staff do, either caring for these families first-hand or raising enough money to keep the place running.’

Shooting Star, which provides care, support and advice for life-limited children and their families across the western half of London and north Surrey, opened its hospice doors in Hampton in 2005. Five years on, the charity continues to support more than 250 families across London. Care services are provided free of charge to families, so the charity needs to raise £3.5 million every year in order to continue its work.

HMS Richmond in town

The Type 23 frigate HMS Richmond is visiting London for a seven-day stay in the capital today.

The 4900-tonne warship will berthed alongside HMS Belfast at 9am, having passed beneath Tower Bridge just a few minutes earlier. The main purpose of the visit is to further foster the long standing and close relationship between the ship and her affiliate, the Borough of Richmond.

Civic affiliations are an important part of the Royal Navy’s commitment to raising the awareness of the variety of roles, equipment and people that make up the Senior Service.

By interacting with the local community, both in terms of allowing crew members to repay the affection shown to them, and as a recruitment function, a ship’s company can forge a lasting relationship. HMS Richmond is extremely fortunate to enjoy an extremely strong bond with both Richmond in Yorkshire and the Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames.

The highlights of the visit include an official reception on board, the day after the ship’s arrival and a ‘Freedom Parade’ in the Borough of Richmond on July 9. The Parade itself involves a short ceremony which will allow the Mayor, Councillor David Marlow, to inspect a guard and three platoons from the ship’s company totalling 96 Officers and Ratings. The ceremony will take place outside the Town Hall before the ship’s company exercises its right to march through the streets of Richmond.
