Leading UK infrared company announces sponsorship of local junior rugby team
IRT surveys is proud to announce the sponsorship of the junior team of Old Richians RFC in Gloucester. It covers the costs of the kits for the next 2 years for the 20 children who form the squad.
It did not take much for Regional Manager Richard Lloyd to be convinced to sponsor the team of youngsters “We are delighted to be helping a local club and encouraging youngsters to be active. When we see the professional players on TV particularly at the time of the Six Nations, we forget that they started young at their local club. Without sponsorship, local clubs can struggle. Helping them along financially is a simple way for us to support the community we work in. The fact that my son coaches the team and my grandson plays in it also influenced my decision of course.“
Team Manager Robert Lloyd added “Sponsorship for us is vital. Without it we would have to ask parents to pay for the kits. Some may not be able to afford it and that would prevent the children to take part. This sponsorship deal will provide for everything the budding rugby players need. With an excellence public attendance at the matches, it is good publicity for local companies too.”
