Corry Evans proved a class act as he made a surprise visit to local primary school St Leonard’s in Langho.
The Rovers midfielder was on hand to present certificates to pupils who had completed the Kinder +Sport Move and Learn project.
The six-week project, run by Rovers’ Community Trust, teaches children about the body, fitness and nutrition, as well as participating in sports such as football, dodgeball and handball.
The aim of the project is educate primary school key stage 2 children in how to live a healthy lifestyle in an exciting way, participating in practical tasks.
Corry said: “They’re learning all about healthy living and playing different sports, like handball and football, so it’s great for them to learn about how to treat their body, with eating right and living right, and it goes a long way towards their development and growing up.”
Chris Pettigrew, Rovers’ Move and Learn co-ordinator, said: "It was great to see Corry at the school. He helped handing out the certificates and answered some posing questions the children threw at him.
“It shows the children that the project is worthwhile as it is supported by their role models, who they watch week-in and week-out at Ewood Park.”
