MEET MR AND MRS CARTMELL

Mr & Mrs Cartmell are ex-parents of pupils at BBEC and Grandparents of those who still go to BBEC. Their children all went to BBEC and Melania sadly passed away with Leukemia whilst at BBEC. She wasn't brilliant at sport but put lots of effort into sports. Before sports day she really wanted to do long jump and all the teachers said she put lots and lots of effort into practicing for the long jump. After she passed away, her parents donated the Cartmell Endeavour Trophy, this has and still is given away every year to a pupil who puts in extreme amounts of effort. They have been going to BBEC Sports Days for over 30 years! Imagine that 30 sports days at BBEC, although many things have changed, they still remember Mr Shepherd with his race starting clappers!

    I'm so proud of what my aunty achieved in her short life and the bravery she showed and I'm glad that my grandma and grandpa donated the trophy as it not only commemorates such a wonderful person, but ensures that she will never be forgotten at Broughton.

  2. I will never forget Melanie practising for Sports Day not long before she died. She was doing long jump and because she was not very strong at the time was not able to jump very far. Did this stop her trying? Not a chance! She put some of the other students to shame.
