A junior rugby team in Bromley has been storming the pitch in style thanks to a kit sponsorship deal from leading UK boiler manufacturer, Baxi.
The Park House Rugby Juniors team, which includes players aged between 13 to 19 years old, relies heavily on donated funds to cover its operational and equipment costs. With its annual tour approaching and minimal financial support, the team was at risk of being unable to provide a full kit for each player.
Keen to provide a solution to the issue, Paul Renwick, one of the team’s qualified assist coaches and a field engineer supervisor at Baxi, called upon his employer for its support.
In line with the company’s dedication to supporting worthy causes in the community, Baxi was quick off the mark, offering to donate a shirt for each player.
Paul Renwick commented: “The team would like to thank Baxi for its kind donation. Each player had a tour shirt this year, which really helped them to look the part and work as one on the pitch.
“I have been coaching the Juniors for six years and feel a great sense of pride in supporting their development into respectful and responsible young men, both on and off the pitch. It’s fantastic that Baxi could be a part of that.”
Graham Lineker, youth rugby development officer and Juniors chairman at Park House, added: “Already Baxi’s support has been a great help in creating a welcoming environment for the kids we teach, so we hope they will continue their kind and generous support in the future.”
