The Trust would like to say a massive thank you to BBC Children in Need for their amazing support. We have been successful in securing some funding which will help us continue the work we do to benefit local primary school children with autism for the next 3 years. This is particularly relevant as we start to come out of lockdown.
We do however still need a regular stream of funding to allow all our programmes to carry on, as well as help us to develop new programmes to allow us to benefit more people within our community. If you would like more information about how you can support the Trust please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
By now you will all be aware James is producing two challenge videos a week for you to try at home. How are you all getting on with them? Don’t be afraid to share your videos with us and give the video alike. By liking the video (and sharing it) you are helping us promote the Trust’s work far and wide. The videos from June were:

We have a few big announcements in the coming months which we are very excited to share with you! We can start today by announcing that we are changing our name to Strathmore Community Rugby Trust. We feel this change better reflects what the Trust does and the area we work in – the Strathmore Valley. We partner with both Strathmore and Brechin Rugby Clubs and currently deliver activity in Forfar, Kirriemuir and Brechin.
We are very excited that our Autism Friendly Rugby programme has been featured in the June edition of Rugby World magazine! It’s out in the shops now so feel free to pick yourself up a copy. This edition focuses on “inclusive and diversity” and features some cracking examples of what can be achieved through our wonderful game.
James has been busy again this month creating #challenge videos for people to try. Below are the links to the videos he has created throughout May:
