At Novus Health, we’re committed to making a lasting difference in the communities where we live and work. Our mission is more than just providing exceptional health care; we strive to create healthier, more active communities. A testament to this is our recently launched Community Fund.
We’re excited to announce that the first award from the Community Fund has been granted, supporting a wonderful initiative that aligns perfectly with our mission. Novus Health is proudly sponsoring the England Universities Rugby League, represented by one of our dedicated MsK clinicians, Joe Smith, who supports the team as a member of their volunteer staff.
As an integral part of the university sports framework in England, the Rugby League programme engages over 2,000 students weekly in physical activity, promoting overall wellbeing. Next year, the programme will celebrate its 40th anniversary, underlining its long-standing impact on student health and community spirit.
Our funding of £650 will ensure that the team can participate in the Student Rugby League 4 Nations championship this July. In this high-stakes competition, England will face off against Ireland, Scotland, and Wales at the Sardis Road Stadium in Pontypridd, Wales. It’s an event that not only promotes the values of sportsmanship and camaraderie but also the benefits of regular physical activity, all principles that resonate deeply with our core values at Novus.
Supporting the England University Rugby League team is just the start. The Community Fund is designed to back more such impactful initiatives that promote health and wellbeing in our communities.
Through our Community Fund, we aim to extend the impact of Novus Health beyond our organisation and our primary care services, reinforcing our commitment to the health and wellness of the communities we serve.
We’re proud to stand behind Joe Smith and the Universities Rugby League team as they endeavour to make a difference both on and off the field. We look forward to sharing more updates on their progress, and other initiatives supported by the Community Fund, soon.
At Novus Health, we believe in inspiring healthier futures. Thank you for joining us on this exciting journey. Stay tuned for more updates on how we’re working to make a lasting difference in the communities we serve.
