New Walking Rugby Programme Gets Underway Next Month

The Hull FC Community Foundation’s Walking Rugby programme is set to resume from Thursday 9th June, supporting older men with their physical and mental wellbeing.

It’s all thanks to funding received from the Health Tree Foundation, with the aim of the project to help build social connections, whilst improving mental wellbeing and developing a greater understanding of healthy lifestyles.

The Walking Rugby programme will take place on Thursdays at 11.00am, running from 9th June until 21st July.

Several of the Hull FC Community Foundation’s projects not only deliver physical benefits, but they also offer the opportunity to socialise with like-minded individuals, creating new friendships in the process.

By using people’s love of Hull FC as a catalyst for creating social connections, the Community Foundation hopes to bring the older generation of Black & White supporters even closer together.

Plus, there’s no need to book your place – simply turn up and play!

Head of the Hull FC Community Foundation, James Price, said: “We are proud to offer the latest installment of our Walking Rugby programme to help bring some of our older supporters closer together through physical activity.

“We have seen from similar projects that we have been running, such as Unite Fitness, Match Fit and Energise Club to name a few, people are building friendships that they further build on outside of our projects, which demonstrates how good these activities can be for people’s mental wellbeing.”
