Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation

Another successful half-term

Trinity Healthy Holidays

Following the success of our Tackling Hunger camps across 2021, the Foundation continued our support of the community with free, multi-sport holiday camps throughout the half-term. 

The four-day sessions are designed to help children and families that require support, whilst also making sure that the children of those families get a meal during the break, with long-time partner Morrisons supporting the event once again.

Over the course of the camp, participants were offered the opportunity to take part in loads of activities, including quick cricket, tag rugby and dodgeball, all topped off with a question-and-answer session by special guests Jai Whitbread, Corey Hall and Brad Walker.

With over 50 young people joining in across the week, the newly re-branded camps have been a huge success in supporting the community throughout the holidays.

Trinity DNA

A new name, but running exactly the same, Wakefield Trinity’s Player Development Centre camps restarted in February half-term, with over 100 young players joining us for two days in Kettlethorpe. 

Our centres have attracted huge numbers over the past few years, getting back to their best in 2021 after Covid-19 scrapped plans the year prior.

Run by our experienced coaches, both boys and girls, all the way from under-12 to under-16 level were offered expert guidance and advice.

Amongst the activities undertaken, players were offered an insight into what it takes to move through the ranks in a professional club, learning the importance of teamwork, communication as well as key skills with the ball in hand.

These camps are all designed to offer players already integrated in the community set-up active and support their future development. 

Speaking on the success of the programme, Head of Foundation, Mark Brennan, said, “We are delighted to see so many participants across a whole host of community clubs attend our Trinity DNA camps this February.

“The calibre of young players has been fantastic and it is great to see them developing in a unique environment.”
