Correspondent 23rd Feb, 2018

A WOODFIELD Academy pupil is to receive a voucher from JD Sports after singing the company’s praises in an essay, writes Rhys Goodfellow.

Cai Powis will be presented with a voucher by the Redditch store manager at the end of the month, after writing an essay about his ‘favourite place,’ as part of an assessment.

John O’Brian, English Teacher at Woodfield Academy, said: “He wrote a wonderful story about going to JD Sports and his form tutor and I asked him and his parents if we could send it to JD Sports.

“We received a wonderful response from Peter Cowgill, their executive director, saying he was going to send a voucher to the young man for all his efforts.”

Cai will receive the voucher on February 27.
