Look North?s Christa Ackroyd will host the event, which will aim to provide details of the Foundation?s plans to continue the work of the award winning Bradford Bulls Community Development Programme and the Foundation will be officially launched by Richard Caborn, Minister for Sport and Tourism.

The Bulls programme of introducing sport and education to the Bradford Community and beyond has achieved tremendous success and recognition since its inception in 1995.

The Bradford Bulls plan to continue to build on these successes and has taken steps to establish their community programme as a Charitable Foundation entitled ?The Bradford Bulls Foundation?. The first of its kind in Super League, The Bradford Bulls Foundation will provide and deliver services and activities for the benefit of the community with its main objectives to support Education, Health and Well Being, Social Inclusion, Social Cohesion and Civic Pride.
