10 July 2015Jonnie helps open a sensory room at Samuel Pepys School
Paralympic star Jonnie Peacock has opened a new multi-sensory room for children with physical and learning difficulties at Samuel Pepys School in St Neots.
Samuel Pepys is the 20th special school in the country to benefit from one of the rooms funded by BT in partnership with the Lord's Taverners charity.
Jonnie, who grew up in St Ives and lost a leg after contracting meningitis, said: "It's essential that we do everything we can to improve the lives of young people with disabilities. To witness first-hand the effects that these multi-sensory rooms have on young people's lives is incredible."
