Local book launch for charity

Thomas Nabbs, creator of The Waterboy charity with More Than a Game, pictured with the new coffee table book that had its official launch in Cambridge this week.

Local charity The Waterboy held a book launch for its new coffee table book, More Than a Game, in Cambridge on Thursday night. The book is full of inspirational stories of kids the sports charity has helped in 2017, as well as messages from Kiwi sporting icons such as rugby player Israel Dagg, rower Robbie Manson, cricketer Tim Southee and netballing great Casey Kopua.

Cambridge businesses have got right behind the charity started in 2016 by local Thomas Nabbs, including Five Stags in Leamington which provided drinks and nibbles at the launch at Paper Plus on October 4. Members of the New Zealand rowing and Magic netball teams were also in attendance. Proceeds from the book will support the work The Waterboy does, breaking down barriers that stop Kiwi kids from participating in sport.
