A number of our senior rugby players paid a special visit this week to Sherbourne Fields School in Coventry. 

Sherbourne Fields is an all-age special school for pupils with a broad spectrum of need including physical disabilities, medical conditions and learning needs. The school’s population is wide-ranging and diverse, with pupils from a rich mix of social and cultural backgrounds.

On Wednesday 7th April, Ollie Andrews, Louis James, Evan Mitchell, Will Rigg, Lucas Titherington, alongside the clubs Community team, visited the school whom which Coventry Rugby club already have a fantastic relationship with. This is thanks to the excellent work that our community officers have been doing there week in, week out for a number of years now.

Each player spent the morning with a separate class at Sherbourne Fields, getting to help and participate in a wide range of classroom and outdoor activities such as music, parachute games and arts and crafts.

Community Officer, Sam McNulty said “I think the kids have had a great time, and we’ve had a wonderful time here today too” at the end of the fun-filled morning.

Our players brought plenty of Christmas cheer to the students of Sherbourne, donned in their Christmas jumpers and Cov Rugby festive hats. We would like to thank everyone at Sherbourne for having us, and for the incredible work that all the staff do there every day.
