Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation on the hunt for volunteers to help raise funds!

The Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation are on the hunt for volunteers to help them raise funds to carry out their work in the local area, with a committee being set up to assist in their fundraising works.

Sport and physical activities are at the heart of the Foundation, over one hundred thousand people have been engaged with since being set up in 2006.

As a charity, the Foundation values the generosity and support of their current partners and donators, and in setting up this committee, it is hoped that more can be raised to carry out further projects and positively impact the lives of many more people in the local community. 

To aid this, Mark Milsom has joined the team as Fundraising Officer. 

He started getting involved in charity work to make a more productive use of his spare time. Mark took part in a bike ride from Hull to St. Helens via Wakefield for the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF), and took on one challenge after another to raise money for charity. 

“I’ve done things for national charities, and found the SPF very friendly and appreciative of what people did for them.” 

One bike ride led to another, and 10k runs in there as well, and he then became involved with Team Evan, a local charity set-up following to death of Stanley Rangers player Evan Hawksworth in 2017, holding successful golf days since 2018 and more bike rides on top of those. 

“The support from the Rugby League community is amazing, always willing to help and support.” 

Those wanting to get involved in fundraising, or have interest in joining a new committee being set-up, should contact Mark on 01924 211611 or email him at mark.milsom@wakefieldtrinity.com
