Hope @ Rochdale Judo Club is the latest support for people new to the borough of Rochdale
A new scheme using the power of sport to support refugees and people seeking sanctuary in Rochdale is being run by Rochdale AFC Community Trust and Rochdale Judo Club.
Hope @ Rochdale Judo Club is the latest support for people new to the borough of Rochdale, running each Thursday afternoon from 4.30pm to 5.30pm.
The collaboration came about after Rochdale Judo Club approached Liz Cotterill, the inclusion co-ordinator at Rochdale AFC Community Trust. Following the progress of Hope Football – bringing people together through football – they wanted to start a similar arrangement using judo.
Liz said: “If you are new to Rochdale, a refugee or work with people who would benefit, then you’re encouraged to come along and try it out. We have places for 20 people, aged 16+, and you will be met by a warm welcome.”
Established in 1950, Rochdale Judo Club provides UK Coaching Certificate and British Judo Association-registered judo training from experienced, certified, and accomplished players.
Hope @ Rochdale Judo Club - Thursdays, from 4.30pm to 5.30pm. No kit needed.
