Featherstone Rovers Foundation, the official charity for Featherstone Rovers RLFC have received a £1000 grant from Moto Community Trust. The grant is to support the refurbishment of the learning facility based at The LD Nutrition Stadium by purchasing new ICT equipment to support the community engagement projects that the Charity runs.
The Moto in the Community Trust was launched in 2005 as a grant-making charity supporting various local groups and national charities by raising money at Moto locations nationwide. Funds raised by our charity are then distributed back into local communities through grants such as this one, which will support the activities the Foundation deliver.
Amy Hardman Head of Community Development at the Foundation said ‘It has been fantastic to receive the support from the Moto Community Trust. With their support we have been able to purchase x6 new computers for our unique learning facility here at the Stadium. The current IT equipment is over 10 years old and therefore causes frustration for our learners, and this has had a negative effect on their motivation to complete tasks and engage in the learning experience we are trying to provide. With the new equipment we won’t be limited by the type of activities we can deliver using the ICT equipment, which we use to inspire and enthuse our learners.’
