First season outing for Foundation's WEX programme

Bristol Bears’ European clash with Zebre saw a first outing of the season for the Community Foundation’s Work Experience programme.

The support of the charity’s newest partner sponsor, Lancer Scott, has enabled a new level of development for the programme, with a mixture of schools and Project Rugby pupils experiencing the life-changing scheme.

The programme is being supported by the Foundation’s wider inclusion team and also sees Charlie Hughes and Nino Genua returning for a fourth consecutive season.

Programme manager, Kris Tavender said: “It really does fill us with pride to see our match-day WEX crew kick-off and kick-on at Ashton Gate Stadium.

"Made up of disabled individuals, aspirational young (and old) people, players and fans alike -  the team really does reflect a true community. A blessing to work and watch alongside them.”

Community development manager, Craig Capel said: “From giving out flags to managing the inflatable try posts, it was fantastic to see our young volunteers working hard to support the matchday experience of our fans at a Bristol Bears fixture.

"Huge thanks to all from the Work Experience Programme for your help.”
