Sisterhood Basketball

I had a brilliant time filming with Sisterhood Basketball in Sheffield. They're a club made up of girls and women from ethnic minority backgrounds and show the power of sport to do good.

Women's Six Nations

I went to Loughborough this week to see how England Women's Rugby Union squad were preparing for their crucial Six Nations match versus Ireland in Doncaster on Sunday. We didn't finish filming until about 5pm so it was a tight turnaround to get the report on air for 6:30pm. The key was preparing questions and a draft script beforehand.

Sugar

This week I filmed and edited a story about efforts to encourage people to cut down on the amount of sugar they eat. Nearly one in four children starting school in Sheffield is overweight or obese and nearly 2,000 children a year in the city have to have a general anaesthetic to have teeth taken out. It's largely down to the alarming amount of sugar many kids consume. A 5-year campaign has been launched to encourage parents and children in Sheffield to reduce their sugar intake.
