The Featherstone Rovers Foundation are inviting all businesses, supporters and their employers to take part in our Rovers Blue and White Day!
The Featherstone Rovers Foundation work with in excess of 20,000 children, young people and members of the wider community each year, addressing local need, inspiring and engaging communities through the power of sport.
In recent years the foundation has been successful in securing substantial funds from major grant funders such as BBC Children in Need, Heritage Lottery Fund, Comic Relief and Sport England these funds have and continue to enable us to see our community thrive providing opportunities they may otherwise be unable to access, however they are restricted solely to a singular project.
Each year the foundation are challenged with raising £65,000 in unrestricted funding to fund vital running costs to our organization that our funders simply do not cover. Our unrestricted funding allows us to also match fund many of the activities the community has accessed such as Heritage Workshops, After School study Support, tag rugby tournaments and numeracy and literacy days.
Between Monday 29th June – Friday 17th July we are inviting local business’s to host a ‘Blue and White Non – Uniform day’ in aid of the Foundation. All businesses will receive a FREE Family ticket worth £44 to the Featherstone Rovers V Whitehaven Game which takes place on 25th July along with a certificate to celebrate their efforts. All we ask is that employees make a suggested donation of £1 to take part!
Speaking on the initiative Fundraising Manager Laurabeth Jaggar Said “It’s time for the Foundation to really crank up its fundraising appeal in order for us to keep vital projects alive, I am delighted that many local schools have agreed to take part in the event and I am now reaching out to our sponsors, local businesses, supporters and their employers. No matter how small your business is you can make a huge difference to the work we do!”
