Doncaster taekwondo champ and Olympic medallist Sarah Stevenson MBE will receive the Freedom of the Borough next week.

Sarah will be presented with a framed hand painted scroll at a special ceremony in the Mansion House at 1.30p on Monday, which will also be attended by Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster, the Civic Mayor Eddie Dobbs and Jo Miller, Doncaster Council Chief Executive.

A former pupil at Don Valley High School, Sarah became Junior World Taekwondo Champion in 1998 at the age of 13 and two years later, became Senior World Champion, overcoming more experienced athletes to achieve this goal. She repeated this victory in 2005 and 2011 and has been Junior and Senior European Champion for over a decade.
