Willo and Nuggett Rees

Nov 2, 2020

We are incredibly honoured to have Barry “Nugget “ Rees an Australian cricketing great and legend creating a bat for Willo.
We received the news and photo today of Nugget and we could not quite believe that this beautiful and inspirational man was now part of our team. He is someone we have known of and have been inspired by for many years. Since seeing Australian Story and his incredible journey of a young 18 year old living with learning delays finding his way to becoming a mentor and friend to theAustralian Cricket Team and South Australian Crickey for the last 50 years. He became a trusted confidante and companion of crickets biggest names and he did this simply by being himself, for his honesty and integrity.  He is Will and he is the many young people we are endeavouring to support living with intellectual disabilities.
