2 Funding Bids and Partnerships
Doncaster Knights have run & been involved with numerous schemes and successful bids which have all worked towards a more active and healthy community. Working together with such partners as the RFU, the NHS, Doncaster Rovers (now Club Doncaster) Doncaster Council, DCLT, small local charities including Parish Councils, Local sports clubs including: Rugby, Hockey, Cricket, Cycling, Walking, etc.
All of the above partnerships have been exciting to be part of, with several different approaches, from ‘knocking on doors’ to enquire about lifestyles, to free health checks on match days, or delivering sports & fitness sessions out in the community.
If you have a scheme you would like us to get involved with please contact us on 07403189280 or email -firstname.lastname@example.org
