Rotherham United Community Sports Trust wins regional award for successful health and wellbeing programme.
The Rotherham United Community Sports Trust is delighted to announce that their health and wellbeing team has scooped a regional award for their bespoke ‘Man v Fat’ programme at the Man v Fat Awards Evening in Manchester.
The Trust’s ‘Man v Fat’ programme currently provides tailored health, wellbeing and physical support through a specially designed programme that currently works with more than 80 people who live in Rotherham.
Man v Fat is a national organisation that works with local providers to deliver the initiative and the programme sees people take part in a 7-a-side league where participants gather league points both on and off the pitch.
Points are scored by the number of players losing weight and extra goals are awarded to those who complete a food diary or record weight loss.
The regional award recognises the Trust’s commitment to going above and beyond for its members, creating a tight knit community for those who take part and for providing up-to-date health advice.
Colan Leung, Health and Wellbeing Manager at RUCST, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised for our work with the Man v Fat programme. Winning the regional award against 57 other partners is a testament to the hard work of everyone involved – from our fully trained staff to all our participants who get involved.
“The RUCST is a long-standing partner of the national Man v Fat organisation and we now proud to be in our in 15th season of delivery. The programme has helped hundreds of men in Rotherham to live a happier and healthier life.
“With the top scorers losing around three stone and 30 cm off their waist in just 14 weeks there’s no wonder we are one of the top performing clubs in the country!”
Elle Cody, Regional Coordinator from Man v Fat, said: “Congratulations to everyone at RUCST. They demonstrate great foresight when it comes to developing the club and are attentive to player feedback. They work hard to ensure every single member is valued and heard.”
The Man v Fat football sessions take place every Friday, 7pm-9pm at Parkgate Astro. To get involved visit www.manvfatfootball.org/rotherham.
