Commonwealth Baton Visits Stoke Mandeville Stadium

The Queen’s Baton today visited Stoke Mandeville Stadium, Buckinghamshire, as it continued its tour of England ahead of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Commonwealth and Paralympic champion Ollie Hynd, MBE, supported an open sports day, held at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, which saw a variety of para and able bodied ‘come and try’ sessions, such as wheelchair rugby, tennis and water polo.

The Baton was parachuted into England on Wednesday morning in Oxford, and has already visited London before heading to Buckinghamshire.
