Our Chief Executive Lynne, bids farewell to Dan as he moves on from Bath Rugby Foundation.

Dan and I joined Bath Rugby Foundation at the same time six years ago, and although I have never known the Foundation without Dan, what I do know is during that time he has made an incredible difference to our charity and most importantly to the lives of thousands of children and young people.

Dan has been a driving force behind our work with mixed-ability rugby across the South West, and has helped us to engage all young people in sport.

His passion and commitment to inclusive sport is truly inspirational and Dan has put his heart and soul into establishing the Mixed Ability Cup as a wonderful event in our calendars.

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say there are hundreds, maybe thousands of young people in our community who would feel excluded from sport if it wasn’t for you.

Thank you Dan.

Dan is a dedicated and passionate human who has always gone the extra mile for our foundation. He has been instrumental in building the self-belief and skills of many young people, and while doing this has grown and developed himself to a level where he feels confident to leave us. 

I know that you are leaving to pursue your dream of becoming a teacher, and I'm so excited for you. I know that you will be an amazing teacher, and I'm confident that you’ll will continue to make a difference in the lives of young people.

On behalf of the entire foundation, I want to thank you for your hard work and dedication, and we are so grateful for everything you’ve done for us.

I know that you’ll be missed by everyone here, but I'm confident that we will all stay in touch.
