A Royal Celebration

Special Olympics Great Britain Gymnastics Coach Jane Whetnall has been awarded the Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE)  for outstanding service to the disability sport community. The MBE is awarded for a significant achievement or outstanding service to the community or for local ‘hands-on’ service which stands out as an example to other people.

She remarks, “I was especially thrilled that it was Prince William who presented the MBE. He talked to me about disability sport and the fact I would be taking the Great Britain Special Olympics Rhythmic Gymnastic team to LA 2015.” Read the full story on Special Olympics Great Britain’s website
