ABOUT FEATHERSTONE ROVERS FOUNDATION
THE Featherstone Rovers Foundation is the official charity of Featherstone Rovers RLFC, registered Charity No. 1118452. We deliver projects and activities within the Featherstone, former 5 towns area and wider parts of the Wakefield District.
We use the power of sport and the Featherstone Rovers RLFC reputation to give the community skills to lead fulfilled, healthy and active lifestyles. Last year we engaged with over 26,000 people, across the Wakefield District.
Our excellent reputation, for quality delivery, has seen the variety of activities and programmes that we run develop and expand to meet the needs of those taking part and to reach out to those who are not. Diversity in activities allows us to engage participants from a wide range of different backgrounds and encourage a greater community spirit, celebrating individual as well as group achievements.
Our aim is to inspire and motivate individuals to create positive changes in their community, through delivering activities under our five focus areas :
Heritage and Arts
We work with primary and secondary schools, community clubs and voluntary organisations and run holiday camps, rugby festivals, community days and health and education projects to engage with both children and adults from all over the community.
