At the end of Bath Rugby Foundation’s 10 year anniversary celebrations, we are proud to announce that the Foundation has won the “Contribution to the Community” award at the 2014 Bath Chronicle awards. This is an award the Foundation are particularly proud of as it recognizes the efforts the entire team have put into the award winning outreach, inclusion and education programmes and highlights the positive impact these projects have on the local community.
The award also recognises the diversity of the projects undertaken by the specially trained coaches and mentors including Premiership Rugby’s HITZ programme and Bath Rugby Foundation’s own literacy based course ‘Stickability’.
Mandy Gardener, new General Manager at Bath Rugby Foundation, said: “As a team, we are absolutely delighted to win this award. The delivery team works so hard in the community and we engage with some really challenging children. Winning is a huge ‘well done’ to everybody. It’s an award for the young people we work with as well as us.”
Bath Rugby Foundation, the independent charity of Bath Rugby, uses the power of the Club’s brand, and the influence of Bath Rugby players as role models, to work in all areas and sections of the city. We try to motivate, raise self esteem, increase confidence and improve life skills, by imparting the values found in rugby - camaraderie, loyalty, discipline and respect.
