Our annual Santa Dash began today with several members of the first team squad heading out to local schools across the borough.
13 first team players, including the likes of Ben Barba, Luke Thompson and James Bentley, visited 12 Primary Schools and two Secondary Schools this afternoon.
They posed for pictures, signed autographs and delivered special gifts from our Community Development Foundation.
We visited Allanson Street, Broad Oak, Carr Mill, Holy Cross, Holy Spirit, Merton Bank, Parish Church, Queens Park, Rivington Road, Robins Lane, St Augustine’s High School, St Cuthbert’s High School, St Marys & St Thomas, St Peter & Paul and St Theresa’s.
As a thank you, the Foundation donated a family ticket for the Castleford match to every school they have worked with, alongside the Sky Try programme, to use as a raffle prize or reward.
They also entered the school in a special raffle to win a framed signed shirt amongst other prizes.
We will continue our Santa Dash over the next three weeks as we aim to visit every primary school in the town!
