Congratulations to our founder Anthony Brooke for winning the 160th Points of Light Award.
The premier David Cameron, in conferring this unique award says:
‘Anthony was born with cerebral palsy. As a rugby fanatic he had always wanted to play the sport, but when he approached clubs he was offered the position of water boy or encouraged to play tag rugby with other players with disabilities. With the support of the RFU (Rugby Football Union) and the Bradford and Bingley Rugby Club, Anthony set up Bumble Bee Barbarians RUFC, Britain’s first mixed ability team in 2009.’
The Bumbles and IMAS are looking forward to highlight all this incredible work hosting the 1st ever Mixed Ability Rugby World Tournament next August in Bradford!
