Rugby supporting Mental health
Lockdown and all the restrictions we're living under is a toughie and we are all impacted, recognising this, a couple of our first team players have linked the club up with Looseheadz.
Please take a look around their website and check out all of the fantastic work the LooseHeadz foundation does - https://looseheadz.co.uk
We are also incredibly grateful to LooseHeadz who are offering our members a 15% discount on clothing items from the website. At checkout, use code - WRFCRUOK
Sam Woodhall, 1st XV player and life long member at the club will be our main point of contact for LooseHeadz and will manage the relationship between us and them. ‘’Hundreds of thousands of people suffer with mental health issues in today’s society. I have witnessed first hand the negative effects and how a person can turn against themselves and the ones they love. I’m excited to support a cause that can give so many people an opportunity to talk more openly, many of whom may not feel comfortable to do so at the moment. This partnership will aim to help anyone suffering in silence to realise that they are not alone, especially within rugby community.’’
Watch this space over coming weeks as we start to introduce some club wide challenges to get your hands on some stash!! But in the meantime please feel free to reach out to either Sam Woodhall or Adam Bailes if you have any questions or ideas on how we can make a positive impact in supporting our members around mental health.
The RFU website also has these links to keep the youngsters entertained, don't really think there's an age limit though...
#GetYourShirtOn videos and the School of Ruck from the World Rugby Museum to help support parents’ home-schooling by providing physical activities and also interesting trivia, reading, and spelling challenges.
