During one of the first lockdowns, Anastasia told her teacher Amy that she had always wanted to go ice skating.
Amy found her some ice skates and the class team made it happen using the hoist and a tuff tray of ice in class. An ice skating coach saw the clip on social media and invited Anastasia for a session on their Olympic ice rink once covid restrictions were lifted.
Two years later Anastasia finally got her special moment on the ice with James! Unfortunately, the hoist Anastasia was due to use on the ice was broken at the time but James still enabled Anastasia to access the ice with his support.

Thank you to James and Streatham Ice and Leisure centre for making this little girls’ dream come true!
