The Social Prescription sessions at Rotherham United Community Sports Trust have been running since February 2013 and they have been a great success so far. People are referred onto the service by their Doctors and the Social Prescription Team at Voluntary Action Rotherham.
The participants really enjoyed meeting Alex and being able to speak to him as well as have their photo took with him.
Ryan Canadine said “I would like to thank Alex for taking his time to come down and visit the group, it gave the participants something to look forward to and it was a change for them to have a visit from a footballer.
“The participants were all thrilled to meet him and they hope to have more player visits in the future.”
This is a referral service only and unfortunately people are unable to be accepted into the groups by ringing up the Trust.
