Going for Gold at Leeds Castle

Leeds Castle was lit up with gold, silver and bronze fireworks and seen at its finest for a dinner to support young Olympic hopefuls from Kent, following up the Maidstone's Dream initiative.

Leeds Castle was lit up with gold, silver and bronze fireworks and seen at its finest for a dinner to support young Olympic hopefuls from Kent, following up the Maidstones Dream initiative. Guests of Sir Brandon Gough, Chairman of the Leeds Castle Foundation, included British Olympic Committee Chairman Lord Moynihan, the Lord Lieutenant of Kent, Allan Willett, local MP and Shadow Minister for Sport and the Olympics, Hugh Robertson, and Gold Medal winner Garry Herbert. The Foundation is sponsoring Jacqui Gould, a first-class archer, as she trains for the Olympics, and hopes Leeds Castle will serve as a residential base for corporate hospitality or for an international committee during the 2012 Games.
