THE Moat family are showing their support for Hartlepool Olympic hopefuls Jemma Lowe and Savannah Marshall.

Mum Sarah Moat and her two sports-mad boys Jack, seven, and Oliver, five, are backing the girls to do the town proud.

They are the latest Mail readers to get behind Jemma and Savannah, who are representing the town at the London Olympics in swimming and boxing.

Teacher Sarah, 36, married to Kev, 41, a senior project manager, said: “We will certainly be watching the games and we really wish Jemma and Savannah all the best of luck.

“They are doing Hartlepool proud.”

Sarah, of Endeavour Close, Seaton Carew, added: “We have already started watching the games with the football and we are trying to get our hands on tickets for the football at St James’ Park, in Newcastle, next week.”

The Mail is encouraging the whole town to show their support for Jemma and Savannah by displaying our Going For Gold posters.
