"My thanks goes to Peter, who has enabled the links with GLL Sport Foundation and Greenwich Starting Blocks to go from strength to strength during his tenure.

Peter Bundey said: "I believe Greenwich Starting Blocks is in its strongest position as a charity to date, with new dynamic board membership and the ambitious plans for the future support of our athletes."

"Working with my fellow trustees, our focus is to offer the support and assistance needed to ensure our athletes' sporting aspirations and dreams can be fulfilled and build on the Olympic and Paralympic medal successes of Gemma Gibbons, Susie Rodgers MBE and Daryll Neita."
