ABOUT THE PROJECT

Batley Sporting Charitable Trust has received £85,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting project, Batley’s Gallant Youths from the Mountain top. Led by volunteers from the local community, the project focuses on the history of Batley RLFC from its inception in 1880 up to the current day. The project
officially launched on Monday the 24th of April with an event held at their home ground, the Fox’s Biscuit Stadium, that coincided with the 120 year anniversary
of Batley winning the first ever Challenge Cup.
