Gallery: Community Foundation hosts Project Rugby festival

More than 75 girls from four Bristol schools attended the Community Foundation's Project Rugby festival at North Bristol RFC on Wednesday (February 12th).

Girls from St Katherine's, City Academy Bristol, Oasis Academy Brislington and Abbeywood Community School took part in a fun-filled morning of rugby. 

Bristol Bears Women star, Simi Pam, was in attendance for a Q&A session, helping to inspire the girls and enhance their experience. 

Project Rugby is run by Premiership Rugby in collaboration with England Rugby designed to increase participation in the game by people from traditionally underrepresented groups.

Rich Hynes, Project Rugby Head Coach, said: "We’ve had a hugely successful morning, with 75 fantastic young ladies who’ve all embraced our Project Rugby programme and are here today to showcase their new skills.

"The rugby on show has been fast and exciting with team tries being scored all the time. It’s hard to believe that six weeks ago some of these girls had never picked up a ball. Hopefully this is just the start of their rugby journeys."
