Leeds Rhinos Foundation is working with its Ambassador clubs to create healthier environments and improve nutritional standards across the community game.

Funded by Leeds City Council’s Healthy Living Service, workshops are delivered at Emerald Headingley Stadium by Laura Buckle, Health Officer at Leeds Rhinos Foundation, and Emma Strachan from Leeds Public Health, with added contributions from Community Club Development Officers Sam Horner and Helen Schofield.

Each club’s nutrition champion will receive quality training, support and resources to help implement the project within their own club and beyond.

Buckle has also visited community clubs to give an insight into the day-to-day delivery of how clubs can prepare and serve their food and drink, as well as speaking with parents about the importance of making sure their child lives a healthy, active life.

Filming has taken place as part of the project’s rollout, including interviews with Leeds Rhinos first team players on the importance of good nutrition and messages of support for community clubs enrolling on the programme.
