GB donate Wolves family season ticket

Megan delivering inclusive sports activities as part of the Foundation’s Older People project

Gladstone Brookes and Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation have extended their partnership with a new scheme to enable deserving children and their families to support their home town rugby team.

The company has bought a family season ticket for the Wolves games at the Halliwell Jones Stadium and then donated it to the Foundation.  They will now select families to benefit from the ticket for at least 14 homes games this season.

Excellent

GB general manager Leon Moye said:

“This is an extension of the excellent relationship we have with the Wolves, getting more involved with the club and the local community.”

The first family to benefit from the new scheme belongs to Megan who has recently been involved in the TRYHARD Alternative Education programme with a 100% attendance record.

Lead role

She hasn’t attended a mainstream school since 2014 when she became disengaged from education. However, she is now involved with several different services in the town and recently took a lead role in the Foundation’s Older People project.

In the project she is delivering inclusive indoor sports activities to residents in sheltered accommodation, including bowling and a number of games she invented herself.

Fantastic

Foundation Director Neil Kelly said:

“This is a fantastic gesture by Gladstone Brookes to allow participants on our projects to experience the atmosphere of a Wolves Super League fixture. Some of our participants would never normally have the chance to come together as a family to support their home town, so this is a great reward to be able to offer.”

Partnership

2015 is the fourth year of GB’s partnership with the Foundation which has seen a new collaboration with St Gregory’s RC High School in Westbrook where GB staff are helping to deliver high quality sports sessions for children with special educational needs.

Wolves Total:Sport co-ordinator Craig Thomason commented: “I’m absolutely delighted that Gladstone Brookes have decided to back our project again.  The help and support they have offered has enabled us to make a real difference to the futures of these young people.”
