Wheelchair Rugby launch

GB WheelchairThe latest Quack and Field book, Wheelchair Rugby, is being launched in September 2017.  The book has been written in partnership – and with lots of help and input – from the Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby (GBWR) team who have recently been crowned European Champions.

AyazGBWR have been incredibly supportive and it’s a real honour that they are officially endorsing the book too.  One of the star players – Ayaz Bhuta – has written a fantastic foreword in the book.  He’s also agreed to sign some copies!

School visit

Rob delivered his first Primary School book reading.  He visited St Lukes in Salford as part of their World Book Day.  He read to 4 classes of Key Stage 1 pupils and absolutely loved it…despite being nervous beforehand!

Despite his nervousness, the kids also seemed to enjoy it and the school fed back:

The children really enjoyed this experience and we would have no hesitation in recommending other schools to take up the same opportunity of a visit from Rob. Three words sum up the visit for the children:

Enjoyment    Engaging    Excellent

The books challenge the sometimes ‘tricky’ subject of inclusion for all regardless of ability in a fun and engaging way with a moral that ALL can achieve.
