VIDEO: WARRINGTON Wolves’ Head Coach Steve Price was impressed by the “fantastic” Peace Centre following a tour of the pioneering facility with his family.
Steve, who visited the home of the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace with his wife and three young daughters, described the facility as “outstanding” and a “great concept.”
He was given a tour by the charity’s Chief Executive Nick Taylor – a St Helens fan!
Describing the Peace Centre as “fantastic” he added:”It is a great concept and I think it is outstanding for what it is doing.
“There have been a lot of good outcomes. I am very passionate about trying to help people and credit to Nick and the Foundation for what they are trying to do changing lives around the world.”
Putting rugby rivalry to one side Nick said: “Rugby League is about playing the game hard and then getting up and shaking hands.”
A lot of the Foundation’s work now takes place within the Rugby League heartlands along the “M62 Corridor” including Leeds, Huddersfield and Bradford and Nick says he would like to explore working alongside the Wolves’ Foundation.
Meanwhile Steve says he is “loving” his time in Warrington and has offered to support the Foundation as and when he can.
The tour coincided with the 20th anniversary of the “Good Friday Agreement” which was a major turning point in the troubles in Northern Ireland following on the the Warrington Bombing 25 years ago.
