Esprit 'does' sport relief!

Congratulations to Esprit coach Deb Hows for all her hard work on Sport Relief at the Olympic Park Veladrome last Friday. Also to our gymnast, Stephani Sherlock who was on hand to entertain the crowd and for anyone who saw the rhythmic competition between Lord Coe's team and John Bishop's, show them just how rhythmic gymnastics should be done!

Well done both of you, we'll put up some pictures and video's when we can.
