Waterfield Leisure Centre has named Lucy Wright as Melton Mowbray’s ‘Most Inspirational Woman’ following the successful launch of its ‘Our Girls Can’ campaign.
Lucy (34), who lives in the town, was chosen as the centre’s winner after Everyone Active – the sports and leisure operator which manages the Waterfield - launched the social media competition to celebrate inspiring women across the UK getting active and achieving their goals.
Lucy was nominated by her friend, Leah Pond, for her determination to get through a tough time in her life. Lucy was praised for her picking herself up and joining the gym earlier this year to help her get through the difficult period.
The ‘Our Girls Can’ campaign was launched by Everyone Active on International Women’s Day in March, inviting people to nominate women, including any friends, family or workmates, of any age and ability who have inspired them to take on a new active challenge. The competition proved a huge success, with many nominations made across the UK.
