Big Local Dragons’ Den Winner Jim ‘Forrest Gump’ Makes The Papers!

Local residents voted to grant Jim Plunkett-Cole £500 at the Radstock and Westfield Dragons' Den event in 2016. He was due to set off on a huge run, following in the footsteps of (the fictional) Forrest Gump across the USA. His project idea was to carry out live video chats with classes at our local schools, updating them on his journey in order to inspire the children and young people to be active - the funding was to provide the technology necessary to do this. We look forward to some good updates from Jim over the next few months and to seeing children running and encouraging their parents and guardians to run too!
