The captain of the men’s sitting volleyball team had just returned from training in Croatia.

Community Matters Leader, Joy Castell-Evans, told The Hunts Post: “The children are very keen to follow the British Paralympic team and it would be so fantastic if Rob won a medal.”

Mr Richardson has vowed to return to the school after the Olympics to share his experiences of London 2012 with the children.
