Covid has brought its challenges to everyone over the last twelve months and the Hunslet Rugby Foundation has not been immune to this. School closures meant that Development Officer Michael Nuttall was furloughed, and the uncertainty regarding what the future holds is a constant concern for everyone involved.
There is, however, light at the end of the tunnel. Michael is now back in south Leeds schools and has recommenced the Beeston engagement project. The Foundation received further good news with the acceptance of a funding application to deliver a second engagement project in Middleton schools, and a grant from the Garfield Weston Foundation to help fund the work.
Everyone at Hunslet is grateful to the Garfield Weston Foundation and the Inner South Community Committee for their support. Now, more than ever, regular physical activity is important to children’s wellbeing and the club is proud to play its part.
Individuals or businesses that would like to support the Foundation’s work in the community should email Hunslet’s development officer email@example.com
