Leicester Tigers community team visited Kings Cliffe Endowed Primary School in Peterborough recently as part of the club’s Tigers Sports programme.
School children took part in a day of rugby activities led by the club’s community development officers Charlie Hurley and Lawrence Walters.
The day was part of a sports takeover day, which saw Charlie and Lawrence deliver rugby-based activities for classes throughout the day in line with the appropriate social distancing requirements.
Tiger Sports aims to offer a bespoke service to schools to deliver exciting and informative classroom and practical sessions across a variety of sports to schools, colleges and community groups when they most need it.
While the current Covid-19 pandemic has put a halt to many of the community departments programmes throughout the year, Tigers Sports is available to support primary schools offering P.E/PPA cover as well as After School, Lunch and Breakfast Clubs.
Charlie, who runs the Tigers Sports programme, said: “It’s great to spread our services wider than just Leicester and Leicestershire and get children active at a time, especially at a time when kids may not be getting out and being as active as usual.
“Sport and exercise is essential for all and as long as we prepare appropriately to ensure activities are Covid-secure, we can still make the most of the benefits sport had to offer during these strange times.
“The school, teachers and students were very welcoming and a pleasure to work with and we’re looking forward to working with them in the future.”
