On Monday 8 November, Notts County Foundation and Nottingham Rugby joined forces as part of a week-long Anti-Bullying Week campaign in the fight against discrimination, prejudice, and social injustice.
Representatives from both Notts County Foundation and Nottingham Rugby visited the Ramgarhia Sabha Sikh Gurdwara in Old Basford to volunteer with Nottingham’s Guru Nanak’s Mission. The group prepared, cooked, and distributed more than 50 portions of hot food to vulnerable and homeless people across Nottingham city centre, with Nottingham Rugby also donating tickets for their upcoming home game against London Scottish on Friday 19 November to Guru Nanak’s Mission volunteers.
Sam Crawford, Head of Business Development at Notts County Foundation, said: “It was a truly special, humbling, and eye-opening experience to play a small part in supporting the amazing work of Nottingham’s Guru Nanak’s Mission.
“Partnering with Nottingham Rugby to support this local community-driven initiative was a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate that the Nottingham sporting family is united against any forms of bullying, prejudice, discrimination or stereotyping, and with this Anti-Bullying Week being focussed around letting kindness fuel kindness, we hope that this small act encourages other people to be kind when and where possible.”
