Volunteer Hen Freeman has been named Sports Star of the Week by the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The 20-year-old from Milton Keynes was given the award for her excellent job of organising WheelPower’s first ever In2 Sports Camp.

Hen organised the sport event to give disabled adults the opportunity to play sport. Her hard work meant a group of people could discover sports like wheelchair basketball, archery and tennis.

She said: “I took part in sports events as a junior with WheelPower and I believe that sport is a vital part of my life.

“I am thrilled to give other disabled people the same opportunity.”
