St Helens Community Development Foundation | A Day in the Life

The Saints Community Development Foundation's motto is 'Inspiring Communities Through Sport' and the Rugby Football League recently spent a Day in the Life with the Foundation to see that in action.

They kicked off the day servicing elderly fans of the club with a unique 'Reminiscence Cafe'.

The Cafe was the brainchild of Manager Steve Leonard and Eddie Cunningham, the club's Mental Health Ambassador and offers the chance for carers to have a break, while helping dementia sufferers to remember past years of supporting the club through videos and Saints memorabilia.

Then the club went along to support a local Sky Try Festival at Wargrave Primary School, where over 150 kids were enjoying some of their first exposure to playing Rugby League.

Six first team stars made an appearance at the festival to pose for photos and hand out awards, before the day came to an end with a busy evening at the Totally Wicked Stadium as local Year 7, 8 and 9 schools finals took place - providing local children with a rare opportunity to play at the town's biggest sports facility.

The Foundation service local fans, players and more of all ages - watch the video above to take in 'A Day in the Life...'
