Taking the Trust into Shiloh

27 February 2013

For the last three weeks, the RUCST has been delivering various 2 hour activity sessions to the people of the Shiloh Centre

For the last three weeks, the Trust’s Health theme has been delivering regular activity sessions for the participants at the Shiloh Centre.

The Shiloh Charity aims to support the adults of Rotherham who live in poverty and oppression. It is a Christian charity that opens its doors three days a week to the homeless community of Rotherham.

The sessions go on for a total of 2 hours, delivering a range of board and card games for the first hour, while the second half of the session gives the participants the chance to take part in specific target games.

At first, the people of Shiloh were shy to engage with what the Trust’s coaches were putting on, but it’s a completely different story now.

As soon as the team walk through the door the Shiloh gang are keen to get started. The participants have been given the chance to get stuck into curling, boccia and skittles.

The RUCST now hopes to get to the stage where the adults get the opportunity to go to the New York stadium and participate in some cook and eat classes.

It would be a fantastic prospect for the adults involved, because they will get the chance to learn how to cook all sorts of different meals. It will also be a big help to the Shiloh Charity, who do such an incredible service in offering their support to the homeless and the poor.

Health Officer Alex Wilson said: “The Shiloh Charity does such an amazing job in this community. With that in mind, it was more than pleasure for us to come down here and help these guys get a bit more active.

“Yes, at first they were a bit reluctant to take part, but who isn’t shy at meeting new people at first. Now, these guys will continue straight through to next week.”
