Simon Francis and Lewis Cook have been promoting a healthy lifestyle at Pokesdown Primary School this week.
A number of year six pupils were given a workshop by the Community Sports Trust on the importance of a balanced diet and eating the correct foods, a programme sponsored by local solicitors Trethowans.
Before long, the AFC Bournemouth duo turned up and further expressed the significance of the topic, before taking part in a question and answer session.
Additionally, a short quiz with the pupils allowed them to win some fantastic Cherries merchandise, including a t-shirt and a goody bag.
The pair also posed for a photo and signed autographs before the afternoon was out, leaving a number of happy pupils in Pokesdown.
Following the session, head of community Steve Cuss spoke about the success of the programme.
“It’s all about teaching the children about the diet and an active lifestyle,” he said.
“It’s been great having the two players come along, it’s really nice for the kids. We’ve looked at the players’ diets, how they exercise and it’s important that they answer any questions that the children may have.”
James Kidner, from sponsor Trethowans, also spoke to afcbTV about the event.
“It’s been great hearing from the guys and I think we’re all learning something here.
“I think it’s a fantastic thing for these two players to get out in the community and see some kids who are clearly in love with their local team.”
AFC Bournemouth would like to extend its thanks to Trethowans for sponsoring the Healthy Lifestyles programme.
