Mary Macleod, Member of Parliament for Chiswick, Brentford, Isleworth, Osterley and Hounslow joined Jenny Pacey – otherwise known as Enigma from SKY 1’s “Gladiators” show – at Gumley House Convent School to help launch School Sports Week.

National School Sports Week, sponsored by Lloyds TSB, “uses the power of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to inspire more young people to take part in more sport.”

Mary Macleod MP said: “I am delighted to support this brilliant initiative, as I cannot stress enough the importance of getting young girls interested in sport and health.

"This week ties in perfectly with the government’s commitment to improve sports participation in the run up to 2012. The government is eager to promote a healthy lifestyle in young people, and this encompasses participation in sport as well as healthy eating.”
