Salford Red Devils Foundation is delighted to welcome Adrian Morley and George Tapp to their Board of Trustees.

The Foundation is always looking for opportunities to strengthen its local links and to ensure that the local community are best served by the organisation.

The first new trustee, Adrian Morley, is a prominent figure within the rugby league world both in Australia and the UK. As a legend of the game and a successful businessman, Morley is well placed to help guide the Foundation as it embarks on new and exciting programmes to help the local community.

Morley said: “Coming from the area and being a very proud Salfordian, I’m delighted to be a part of the foundation.

“The more Salford kids we can get playing the sport, the better. Fingers crossed there’s a few rough diamonds out there that we can help to bring through.

“All the donations and fundraisers are very much appreciated and we just couldn’t function without these generous people so please keep donating.”

The second new trustee is George Tapp who is a former Salford City Councillor for the Ordsall ward who continues to make an impact in the Salford area through his involvement with employment and the Unite trade union. George is passionate about providing opportunities for Salford residents and has much experience of local infrastructure that will benefit the Foundation.

Tapp said: “As a lifelong Salford RLFC supporter and proud Salfordian, I am extremely proud and excited to be joining the Board of Trustees on the Salford Red Devils Foundation.

“I look forward to playing my part in raising awareness of the Foundation and helping to source income to ensure that the fantastic programmes can continue.”

These new trustees bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience and have expressed their excitement at joining the team. In such unprecedented times it has never been more important for Salford Red Devils Foundation to continue to deliver its array of outstanding community programmes in Salford and across Greater Manchester.

Both new trustees have unmatched local knowledge and can help to ensure the maximum impact is achieved within the local community. Salford Red Devils Foundation would like to thank the whole Board of Trustees for their continued support and guidance as it continues to inspire the community through Sport, Health and Education.

Foundation Director Neil Blackburn said: “I am thrilled to welcome both trustees to a board that is already filled with a wealth of experience that has helped ensure Salford Red Devils Foundation has been able to service its community for over a decade.

“Ensuring that we have passionate, locally-based trustees guarantees that all our programmes and initiatives are fully focused on providing opportunities for the local needs and I look forward to working with both George and Adrian.”

Echoing Adrian Morley, it is important to thank all our funders and donors who continue to help us provide outstanding community programmes for all that help reduce disparity, ensuring that the most vulnerable in society are given the opportunities and support they deserve and need.
