GB Wheelchair Rugby Player Stuart Robinson inspires children at Witton-le-Wear Primary School

Stuart Robinson visited Witton-le-Wear Primary School on Friday 12th February to run a fun fitness session with the children and motivate them with his awe-inspiring story. Stuart was a RAF corporal and was serving in Afghanistan when his vehicle was hit by a Taliban bomb. In order to survive, he had to have both legs amputated but this has certainly not held him back! Stuart went on to win Gold with Great Britain in The Invictus Games and is currently working hard in the hope of competing for Team GB at Rio in the Summer. Acting head teacher Sharon Walker said: “We’ve learnt a lot about Stuart and I hope that the pupils are inspired to get active and try sport and also see that with a bit of perseverance and determination anything is possible.” Find out more here.
