On Wednesday 28th May, Trust in Widnes Members had a grrrreat day out!! 

They went off on safari to Knowsley  Safari Park, all Trust Members and their children (or grandchildren!!) were invited. The Trust has been successful in gaining ‘ Community Champions’ funding which allowed the visit to be offered free of charge.
 Despite some pretty wet weather, we were very lucky as it stayed dry while we completed the walking part of the tour!! However, the highlight of the visit was rather wet!! Because it was the highly entertaining sea lion show.
Trust in Widnes supported a local ‘fun day’ held on the ‘big field’ on the Kingsway estate in Widnes. The stall included the ‘Rugby challenge’ and ‘Ball in the bucket’ games which proved popular to numerous local residents.

Also on display were numerous other stands and attractions including, Local Police, Fire Brigade, the Healthy Living team – making fruit kebabs, Army Cadets cooking rations, Phil Black with Snakes and ‘Creatures’

A climbing wall to practice climbing skills, a bungee run, a galleon, a ball pond, Bouncy Castle, Samba band. Various stalls including, Guess how many sweets in the jar, Guess the weight of the cake, Guess the Teddies name, Candy Floss machine, a caricature artist, games, and free bottled water. There will be 4 bikes on offer to good homes plus Widnes Vikings RLFC organised a ticket deal and offered a raffle prize.

Salford game 19th June
The club has been working in conjunction with TIW to encourage out of borough groups to experience the fabulous game of RL. So far we have organised 30 places for a new junior RL team from Huyton, around the same from Chester Gladiators RLFC, and in discussions with Wrexham RU teams, plus some none RL sports teams including an U16’s football team from Maghull in Sefton.  TIW helped with the transport costs for each group to help spread the word and develop the support base of Widnes RL
