Challenge Cup trophy makes surprise visit to multi-sports camp

Children attending Leeds Rhinos Foundation’s half term multi-sports camp at Prince Henry’s Grammar School in Otley were treated to an experience they will never forget when they received a surprise visit from the Challenge Cup trophy.

The youngsters were given a rare chance to get up close with the iconic trophy on its return to Leeds, following the Rhinos’ dramatic 17-16 victory over Salford Red Devils in the Coral Challenge Cup Final on October 17.

After a short talk on the history of the Challenge Cup and the trophy itself, including a recap of Leeds Rhinos’ fourteen cup final wins, the children were invited to get their picture taken with the famous piece of silverware and capture a lasting memory of this special occasion.

It was the perfect way to round off a fantastic week of action on the multi-sports camp, kindly sponsored by the Outer North West Community Committee. The four-day programme featured a whole host of fun activities and sports-based games, with each session carefully following the latest government guidelines and social distancing procedures to ensure the safety of all participants and staff.

Thank you to everyone who attended and joined in the fun! More fun camps, including those scheduled to run during the Easter school holidays, will be announced in due course.
