- From the section Get Inspired
A group of girls in Oldham, all from British Black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, have taken up a new hobby - lawn bowls.
"I was scared that people would look at me and ask 'this girl wears a hijab but she's playing sport, doesn't she have respect for herself?' - but every human has a right to do what they want," says 17-year-old Qhadijah.
