Up The Saints!
A question I always ask at the beginning of each workshop is, "Who truely inspires you?" And as a Southampton based company, the answer is quite often, "The Saints!"
Well, two of our young authors were so inspired by ther team, that they actually wrote their books about them. I decided to contact the team liason manager to ask if they would like to send the boys a signed photo, but they went one step further...actually quite a few steps further! They sent Sam Gallagher, one of their young players along to surprise one of our authors at their book launch. But they didn't stop there. Sam took the book back to the stadium and each player had their photo taken with the book. Our next young author was taken on a mystery journey to the stadium where he was met by his idol, Shane Long. Shane gave him a signed shirt and pair of football boots!
We love The Saints!
