Vikings join forces with author to encourage reading
11:00am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
VIKINGS players have joined forces with a writer to encourage residents to ‘try’ reading.
Hep Cahill, Alex Gerrard and author Tom Palmer set up camp at Widnes Library as part of the ‘Try Reading’ initiative.
Teams competed in a sport-based quiz and then took kicks at Tom's portable rugby posts with the winners getting a trophy.
Tom said: “I am deeply impressed with the players because they did not just come and say hello to their fans. They talked about what they liked to read and were acting as brilliant role models to the young people there.”
