Warriors’ staff and supporters will be undertaking a range of lockdown challenges next week to raise valuable funds for Warriors Community Foundation.
The Foundation has been doing amazing work in the local area for the last ten years but, like many other charities, has been badly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic which has reduced its ability to raise funds.
Despite the lockdown, Foundation staff are still supporting the most vulnerable people in the community by calling them regularly, chatting to them via Zoom and keeping in constant contact to ensure everyone is coping.
Foundation staff have also been volunteering to deliver vital food and medicines to participants who are isolated and vulnerable.
That support will become even more important once the lockdown regulations ease and vulnerable people come out of isolation and attempt to return to normality.
To ensure that pioneering initiatives such as the Tackling Dementia Sports Cafés, the Homeless Rugby Programme and Disability Sports and Inclusion programmes are there to provide that support the Foundation needs to generate vital funds now.
The Foundation’s Big Fundraiser will run from Monday June 22 to Sunday June 28 and is open to all who would like to take part or simply make a donation to support the Foundation’s life-changing work.
Carol Hart, Head of the Foundation, is walking 100,000 steps in a week, Isobel Brick, the Foundation’s HITZ and Inclusion Mentor, is cycling 100 miles, Outreach Coach Matt Jones is running 60k and Dan Hart, the Foundation’s Development Co-ordinator, and HITZ Officer Angus Laing will be walking 100,000 steps in a day.
