Lottie met Paralympic bronze medallist Aileen Neilson at Stirling’s curling rink which was installed by Star Refrigeration. Aileen is the first ever woman to captain the team GB Paralympic curling team! Lottie attended with members of Star including Business Development Manager, Anne Flanagan. She got to see the rewarding impact of engineering for people. Without it the curling rink which Aileen and her team need to train would not exist!
