Virtual story time with Jimmy Keohane, Eoghan O’Connell and Ollie Rathbone…
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, we’re currently unable to take players out into local Primary Schools, but that won’t stop us from engaging with the area’s youngest residents!
Last week, Jimmy Keohane, Captain Eoghan O’Connell and Ollie Rathbone went to meet Dippy the Dinosaur and record a story time session at Number One Riverside.
With Dippy’s visit to Rochdale extended until December, the Dale trio sat down to narrate a book with a dinosaur theme, bringing Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs Smugglers Bay to life.
Aimed at Year 1 and Year 2 pupils, the story time session, which was filmed by the Club’s media team, will be distributed to the Borough’s Primary Schools by Rochdale Council in the coming weeks.
We’d like to thank Rochdale Council for its support with this initiative.
