We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have teamed up with The Mintridge Foundation and have offered two young athletes from Moulton School & Science College the opportunity to be mentored by Premier League rugby union star George Furbank as part of a five week programme.
Developed by the Mintridge Foundation, the programme, which matches students with an ambassador, has been adapted for lockdown and is continuing to support students with their development and mental wellbeing during this challenging time.
The programme will be undertaken via skype and Playwaze (with full safeguarding procedures in place) with the students having live, one to one sessions with George which will cover topics such as identity, confidence, self-care, performance at school as well as out on the pitch.
Mulberry is funding the programme for both students as part of our Distinctly Local campaign which aims to support two local charities or organisations every month. The programme has continued throughout the Coronavirus pandemic focusing on good causes that can really make a difference to communities coping with the ‘new normal’.
