Skills for life

Funding level: Up to £1,000

Description

Llangennech RFC Juniors are a community based rugby union club in Carmarthenshire, running children's rugby groups across 9 age related teams. The teams range from Under 7's to Under 16's, with some 140 registered players.

The teams train midweek and play weekend fixtures throughout West Wales over a 9 month season. The Juniors section of the Rugby Club is run entirely by enthusiastic volunteers and parents and is dependent upon raising its own finances. All coaches are trained by the Welsh Rugby Union.

As a youth community organisation, we develop Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment and Discipline among 6 to 16 year olds as well as instilling both sporting and mental skills. Llangennech RFC Juniors pride themselves on creating a feeling of togetherness and helping the children identify with their local community.

Our U9's Juniors Section are organising a Weekend Training Camp in Somerset, taking place over the weekend of 3rd May 2019. The Weekend will provide team building away from home in a safe environment. Children will have access to varied activities to help improve their sporting skills as well as the opportunity to bond together as a team. A games against a local Junior team will also be arranged; to help build on the skills they will have learnt over the weekend Training Camp.

If successful, the £1,000 backing would be used to fund essential costs as follows:-

1- Accommodation for the U8's players. The cost of the accommodation also allows us to access areas of the camp for weekend activities for the team building exercises and skills development.

2- Food requirements for the children that weekend. The funding will help purchase nutritional food for the self-catering aspect of the weekend Training Camp.

This funding would greatly assist particular children who may otherwise not be in a position to attend due to family budgeting/social restraints.

We sincerely hope that you will consider supporting our application.

Thank you/ Diolch yn fawr!
