Olympic Bronze Medal winners Jon & Liam

Olympic Bronze Medal winners Jon Schofield and Liam Heath are buzzing this week – following their participation in the Victory Parade through London yesterday, today they visited their main sponsor, The Active Honey Company in Leicestershire, receiving a warm welcome and cheers from all employees.

Local businesses are the unsung heroes of this summer’s British Olympic success. The 200m sprint kayakers have been sponsored by The Active Honey Company and their parent company, Lifeplan, for two years and like many of the Team GB athletes, have been keen to acknowledge the support of their local sponsors, as in many cases the reality is that without their support they may not have been able to achieve such outstanding success.

Jon Schofield commented, "Lifeplan has been incredibly generous in their support of Liam and me, for which we will always be tremendously grateful. I also intend to keep taking Active Rainforest Honey daily as it helps me cope with the demanding lifestyle of an athlete whilst maintaining a strong immune system and staying healthy."

To help ensure optimum health and fitness to achieve their Olympic Bronze, Jon Schofield and Liam Heath included Active Rainforest Honey in their diet. The athletes have been taking a spoonful of the honey at night to help them burn fat whilst they sleep. Honey is historically well-known for its medicinal and healing properties and research also suggests that it may aid weight control too.

Lifeplan has been one of the UK’s leading providers and exporters of quality nutritional products for the past 29 years, with products available in leading supermarkets and specialist retailers in the UK. Their Active Rainforest Honey brand includes a range of traditional edible honey available in four active strengths,10+, 20+, 30+ and 40+ with clinically proven health and wellbeing benefits include successfully tackling coughs, colds, sore throats and mild digestive complaints. The 100% pure Chilean honey is derived from the unpolluted and uninhabited volcanic areas of Chile and it is incredibly potent because it is raw and unpasteurised to maintain activity and biopotency.

Lifeplan managing director, Jamie Christie and his staff were delighted to welcome their Olympic heroes adorned with their Bronze Medals. He said; “Jon and Liam’s success and that of all the Team GB athletes is testament to the commitment and support from local businesses around the UK and the contribution they have made to Team GB’s success. Everyone at Lifeplan is very proud.”
