Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust have joined forces with Wakefield Carers to create ‘Trinity Together’ – a scheme to help supporters with learning disabilities.
For the Trust’s first project in 2013 they are aiming to make a difference in the New Year by providing a service to give supporters a more rewarding matchday experience.
The ‘Trinity Together’ scheme is one that is looking for Wildcats supporters that would like to help fellow fans in a ‘buddy’ like roll to the Wildcats faithful who have learning difficulties. The Trust are seeking to provide a service that supports the community that attends games and to improve their day out at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
The Community Trust are holding their first ever meeting to discuss ‘Trinity Together’ prior to the first friendly game of the New Year against Featherstone this Sunday. The Trust are inviting fans along to the inaugural meeting which will take place 12.30-2.30 at the home of the Wildcats if you want to make a difference in 2013.
Director of Education Mark Winder commented.
“One of the pillars of the Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust is to ensure social inclusion. The scheme will help to remove barriers to some fans both new and old and allow them to enjoy the spectacle of Rugby League.
“Coming to a game is the only social activity some people participate in and we want it to be even better for them. Of course we have half an eye on the new stadium and the group will help make sure that we are inclusive for ALL. After all it will be a Community Stadium.”

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
