August Newsletter

A message from our Chair – David Durbin
The win over the Bulls made up for the disappointment of losing out to the Broncos.
A much better performance which got us back to winning ways and consolidated our
position at the top end of the table. Our win over Batley was all together something else!
An excellent team performance with Salty claiming four great tries which was a joy to watch.
The Eagles up next so let’s hope we can keep this momentum going and further cement our third
place. This is another one not to miss so let’s get down there in numbers and give the team that
important boost!
The recruitment for next season is gathering apace and as you will have seen your support and
contributions have enabled the Club to re-sign Lachlan and Louis. We are extremely grateful as your
support is always appreciated.
As you know our shirt sales on match days are proving very popular. However we are running short of
children’s, medium and large shirts so please have a look in your cupboards. You can bring them down
to any home games or I will be happy to pick them up from you. You can contact me on 07790 852196
to arrange collection at a time which is convenient for you.
Our next fundraising outside of the Shay is a market stall in Halifax opposite Wilkinson’s on Saturday 17th September. Hope to see you there!

Panthers’ Community Update from Kara Colvin
Hi everyone!
This week the CIC panthers have been working hard in the Try High
holiday camps, across 2 venues giving the children a panthers
training session and a 4 day long activity packed camp experience with the help myself, Dan
Murray and Louis Joufrett. These are being run alongside Invictus Wellbeing and Calder
community squash.
We’ve also been working at the outback centre with Artworks Puy Soden, Halifax Opportunities
Trust Lisa Connolly and Halifax Panthers (me) using rugby balls to paint – which will eventually
become several art pieces to be displayed around Calderdale!
Alongside that we had 3 community clubs down to the shay this Sunday to mascot for the men’s
game and have a half time parade.
Summer will be mostly taken up by the camps and the paint project – but I’m also developing a
coaching workshop for all Calderdale community clubs alongside the RFL to continue the development of coaches at all community clubs.
