Ruth Box watches her favourite team and meets idol

When the chance to see her favourite rugby team arose Mrs Ruth Box of Kilsby was overjoyed. She has suffered from chronic arthritis for many years and can only get out and about with a wheelchair.

However, last Sunday, she was able to watch Northampton Saints play the Ospreys in a Heineken Cup game. And to make it a special day, she met her idol, Saints’ captain Dylan Hartley.

Mrs Box said it was a really memorable day, especially with the Saints winning. She would like to thank the staff at Franklins Gardens and Terry Andrews for the transport provided.
