Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation

Foundation’s Easter festivities

Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation successfully hosted both Trinity Healthy Holidays and our Trinity DNA camps over the Easter holidays, securing over 250 participants.

Following its success in February, the Foundation joined up with Wakefield Council to host our Trinity Healthy Holidays for the second consecutive school holiday, with participants coming from all around Wakefield to the Be Well Support Stadium.

Ran by our experienced staff members, participants took part in multi-sport activities, which ran throughout the week, offering them the opportunity to play a range of sports and activities.

Once again, this was supported by Morrisons, who brought along their Community Champions to supply every child with a free school meal on each of the four days.

Speaking on the success of the project, Trinity Healthy Holidays lead, Jorge Richardson, said, “We are delighted that the project returned for the Easter holidays.

“This is a unique camp which uses the power of sport to support a community and the people within it.

“Thanks again to Morrisons, who have played a vital role in helping make sure that all participants stay nourished throughout the school break.”

Moving into the second week of the holidays, we brought back our well-loved Trinity DNA camps as we look to develop the next Wakefield Trinity star.

Over the course of the three-day programme, over 250 participants, both boys and girls, ranging from 12 to 16, were offered the opportunity to train like a Super League and Women’s Super League player.

The programme consisted of four main areas, classroom-based, gym, Wrestle Room and pitch-based development, increasing skill level in every aspect of a young player’s game.

This was rounded off with free lunch and a touch Rugby League game at the end of the day.

Speaking on yet another successful Trinity DNA camp, Head of Foundation, Mark Brennan, said, “We love doing the Trinity DNA camps, they are a great way of developing young players from across the district.

“We have set up the programme a bit differently for April, offering all participants the chance to develop their overall game with the help of our experienced coaches.

“The feedback has been fantastic and we are delighted to be helping the community clubs of Wakefield thrive.”
