Jonathan Allan, Community Programme Manager, said:

“This project uses the power of football, the Rotherham United and The Women’s Euros brands to give children the opportunity to enhance their learning in a practical way. As a trust there is more to our work than just sport and supporting different ways to engage pupils with their learning is something we are very passionate about. Covid had such a negative impact on so many services, including the library, so we are delighted to be able to support the Riverside Library and Neighbourhood team to welcome schools back to the facility”
