Squad head out for latest All Rover Doncaster visits

9 November 2023

Squad and staff have been back out in the community for the latest All Rover Doncaster event.

Wheatley and Intake were the primary focus of the most recent visits, with drop-ins to schools, community groups and good causes all on the itinerary.

Harrison Biggins, Joe Ironside, Ian Lawlor and Jack Senior turned bingo callers at Club Doncaster Foundation’s Walk and Talk club.

The group seeks to combat social isolation and loneliness with weekly sessions involving walks from the Eco-Power Stadium followed by activities and coffee mornings.

After calling out numbers with varying degrees of success, the players in attendance were tested on their knowledge of ex-Rovers with a picture quiz.

Louis Jones and Tom Anderson went along with community wardens from People Focused Group (PFG) to visit vulnerable adults in their homes while Tom Nixon and Jack Degruchy carved pumpkins for Halloween at the organisation’s Wellness Centre in a group for adults with additional needs.

PFG is a peer support organisation offering practical and emotional support to those in need throughout the area.

Owen Bailey and Luke Molyneux attended a Halloween party for children with special educational needs - even joining in with a game of pass the parcel.

Ben Close and Zain Westbrooke visited the Fit Families pre-natal club in Foundation Fitness at the stadium, meeting mums-to-be as they prepare for their new arrivals.

Players also visited Astrea Primary School Intake, Plover School and Mount Carmel School to help hand out Rovers Rewards prizes to deserving pupils. Ten children from each school received an invitation for a VIP experience at an upcoming Rovers game.

Look out for the next All Rover Doncaster event in the coming weeks.
