Lauren Booth's Story
Lauren Booth is a student and volunters with Wiltshire Council's Ability Sports programme, specialising in cycling. As a keen cyclist, she takes part in road races, time trials and track. She also studies sport at Wiltshire College and has recently started volunteering with Wiltshire Council’s Sports Development team.
Lauren has mild cerebral palsy which makes her cycling harder but that hasn’t stopped her from achieving National records and world best times. She is keen to show others that a disability shouldn’t stop you from achieving anything and how much fun you can have at the same time. This is why she enjoys volunteering at the weekly session at Rising Stars sessions for individuals with a disability at Sheldon School in Chippenham. Having had to overcome her own disability, she was keen to help others do the same.
Lauren enjoys spending time with the Wiltshire Council Ability Sports programme participants and loves that they have been able to join in with the activities and have fun whilst overcoming their individual disabilities and gaining new skills and confidence.
She feels that coaching has helped her become more confident and to communicate better with others. She hopes this will enable her to take part in more sessions and give other people opportunities to access and enjoy more sports.
