Here at Rotherham United Community Sports Trust we are proud to support Volunteers’ Action Week 2022 with dedicated members like Stuart.

In support of Volunteers’ Week 2022, Rotherham United Community Sports Trust praise the dedicated and tireless work from of our biggest volunteers, Stuart Wildridge. Since getting involved with the the trust through the EFL charity partner, Mind, Stuart has always been on hand to help out. Having been with the trust for many years of promotions, relegations, lockdown and covid-19, he has always gone above and beyond helping our staff, participants and in the community.

Stuart can be found at The New York Stadium any day of the week, knowing him as we do, we have absolutely no doubts that he is a popular figure both around the club and in the local community. From being our resident mini-bus driver transporting teams, students and deliveries, to showing his green fingers in the memorial garden. If a job needs doing, he is always the first to put his name forward, even when it can’t be convenient for him.

We provide so many opportunities, events and community support all over Rotherham and with a busy and successful year for the Trust, it is all down to the brilliant staff. Stuart has previously mentioned that the main reason for his continued support to the Community Sports Trust is that he gets the satisfaction from being able to provide help to anyone around him.

Jamie Noble, Head of Community said:

“He is one of those people who has a real desire to help others and he certainly does that. He is an inspirational character and we could all learn something from his amazingly selfless nature.

It has been an absolute pleasure to know Stuart for all these years and even more so to work with him. He embodies everything good about our football club and he is a shining example for Rotherham united in our community”
