EFL Green Football Weekend
The football community has the power to change things, like nothing else on planet earth.
Green Football Weekend is unleashing the power of football to tackle climate change, bringing together fans, clubs, leagues and players to have fun and protect what we love.
And this year, it’s all about food and trying a veggie option – whether that’s cooking a veggie meal at home or choosing a veggie snack at a match.
Clubs also have a huge role to play – and this, Rotherham United will be taking part in greener games, taking action to reduce carbon pollution. Head to the nearest kiosk point and ask the Elior staff about our veggie options, here at the AESSEAL New York Stadium!
But by coming together and taking action, we can create real impact. None of us are perfect – but by being part of the journey, we can help protect our world.
Children’s Mental Health Week 2024
Children’s Mental Health Week will take place from 5 – 11 February 2024. The week is run by children’s mental health charity Place2Be and was launched to equip, empower and give a voice to children across the UK. This year’s theme is ‘My Voice Matters’.
Empowering children and young people can have a positive impact on their health and wellbeing. They also have a greater sense of community – and as people become empowered, they can work together to create positive changes for themselves and for others.
For Children’s Mental Health Week 2024, Rotherham United Community Trust would like to encourage all young people to reach out if they need some help or just someone to talk to. Our Sports Participation are actively out teaching children in primary schools across Rotherham about healthy minds and bodies, as part of the EFL Joy Of Moving project.
