Whilst spending some time at BT Sports Studio, I had the pleasure of meeting the scrum half, fly half, full back and wing legend that is Austin Healey. On the rugby pitch there’s not much Austin hasn’t been successful at with 237 caps for Leicester Tigers, 51 caps for England and 2 caps for the Lions.
Rugby aside, Austin also took to the boards in the 2008 Strictly Come Dancing competition reaching the quarter finals.
It was really great to meet such a genuine person and to have a few minutes to chat with him about the charity campaign and what we hope to achieve.
So many thanks to Austin for taking the time to sign the Charity Oars and to helping us raise awareness of DVT’s PE’s and Thrombosis.
