Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation’s partnership with Waterton Academy Trust raises over £13,000 for Rob Burrow, MND and Leeds Hospitals Charity.
Following a monumental effort from everyone involved, the final figure has been split between the Motor Neurone Disease and Leeds Hospital Charity, with each organisation receiving over £6000 to fight back against the disease.
After a selection of activities over the past couple of months, which started with a Waterton Schools festival and club colours day, fundraising ended this week after a raffle was drawn, with Trinity offering a signed shirt, a signed ball and match tickets.
Gathering together at Normation Junior, 11 Waterton schools were joined by Trinity head coach, Willie Poching, CEO, David Dickinson as well as representatives from MND and Leeds Hospitals Charity to showcase all the great work undertaken over the last few months.
Speaking on the overall fundraising initiative, the Foundation’s Head of Education & NCS, Luke Shale, said, “As a Foundation, we were delighted to utilise our ever-growing partnership with Dave at the Waterton Trust to help raise vital funds for both organisations.
The work they have undertaken over the past few months is nothing short of unbelievable, and we are proud to be a part of such a worthwhile cause.
“I am extremely excited to see what this can lead to in the future.”
