The children are part of Seaton Rangers ARLFC, a well-respected local and county-wide club. Recently, some of the children took part in a nationwide competition, known as the Rhinos Challenge, at Butlins in Skegness and represented not only their team, but Cumbria as a whole.
Managing Director of Story Homes in Cumbria and Scotland, Ian Storey, said: “We are delighted to be able to help this local youth team. The discipline and commitment that is required when training as part of a team are great life skills for young people to develop.”
For 30 years Story Homes has built up a reputation for supporting the communities in the areas surrounding its developments. ‘Future Story’ is the company-wide scheme designed to support requests from local charities and community organisations. Its focus is on supporting communities in ways that add long term value, for example, by helping people to develop skills or confidence that will last them a lifetime.
The scheme is run on a quarterly basis and applications for the current round should be submitted online. Further information can be found in the Sustainable Story section of the website.
