July 9 – July 13 2018

Celebrity Adventurer Nick Carter will be leading a school tour programme around the theme of ‘resilience’. Nick is currently completing a solo run from John O’Groats to Lands End. This is the same route that has inspired over 22,500 Gloucestershire primary school pupils to complete a virtual tour of the UK as part of the 2018 Gloucestershire daily mile campaign.

Nick’s talks draw on inspiration from his heroic feats, such as climbing Mt Everest. The talks are designed to inspire participants of The Daily Mile, which now has over 50% of all primary schools in Gloucestershire taking part. This term, students from over 127 primary schools have walked or run a mile a day as part of the Gloucestershire Oldspottrail campaign.

Tom Hall is a physical activity specialist from the charity Active Gloucestershire and has led the Daily Mile campaign in partnership with Gloucestershire County Council, Gloucestershire Healthy Living and Learning and Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group. Tom is thrilled to have a figure such as Carter delivering a message about resilience to students and will be attending several of the guest events.
