Libby Adam (NC 2009 – 14) publishes novel to raise funds for Robbie’s Rehab
Libby Adam (NC 2009 – 14) has published her first novel Daring to raise funds for Robbie’s Rehab, a very special charity and service that rehabilitates children with brain tumours, that was co-founded in memory of their little brother by Lara (MO 2011 – 16) and Harry Keville (TU 2009-2014).
Libby tells us that Daring was written near the end of a three-year period where she was isolated from the people and things she loved. ‘It was my escape and hopefully, for a few hours, this romantic thriller could be yours. Whilst every illness is different, many of our experiences are universal. In this time of isolation and social distancing across the country we are all sharing in a unique moment. Perhaps now more than ever, we all need to help one another find routes to relief and distraction when possible.’
Robbie’s Rehab exists to fill a gap in NHS care. This is why – after a three-year trial – the NHS were due to commission and pay for the service this June, however, the charity have decided to 100% fund the service for another year whilst the NHS copes with COVID-19.
