Grantham students meet Falklands war hero Simon Weston
King's School cadets and history students together with head master Simon Pickett attended a special event with Falklands War hero Simon Weston CBE this week.
Mr Weston gave a motivational talk at St Wulfram's Church about overcoming adversity and how to have a positive mental attitude. The talk was organised by Grantham's U3A.
Mr Weston is a former member of the Welsh Guards. He was badly burned during the 1982 war when the ship on which he was aboard with his regiment was attacked by Argentinian aircraft.
King's School contingent commander Lt Col Ray Ogg said of Me Weston: "His humour is infectious, as his is enthusiasm and engaging personality. The students all met Simon and commented later that they had really enjoyed the experience."
