Glenrothes Rugby Club

The Glenrothes Rugby Club youth teams with some new kit we provided 🏉

“We believe that participation in sport by young people not only improves their health and physical wellbeing but increases their social skills and network and encourages community spirit. Our catchment area extends from Glenrothes to Levenmouth which contains some of the most deprived areas identified on the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation, in particular in health, crime, education and income. In recognition of the lower income in our area, the club keeps costs to parents to a minimum but replacing old equipment and having enough equipment for all age groups is, at times, problematic. Through taster sessions at primary schools and working with Active Schools in high schools we have again increased the numbers in our youth section to 180. Next year we will have not only an U12 girls section but also an U14 girls section for the first time.”

Well done for helping keep our communities and kids active 😀
