As part of the Army Roadshow (10-11 November) on campus we are very lucky to have a talk from Major Heather Stanning MBE, taking place on Thursday 10th November, at 11am.

Heather Stanning wrote her name into the history books at both the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games with golden performances alongside Helen Glover in the women’s pair.

Heather – a graduate of the GB Rowing Team Start Programme, the ground-breaking talent identification and development initiative supported by National Lottery funding – is also a serving Major with the 32nd Regiment Royal Artillery.

This is one very special guest speaker you do not want to miss!
