Asda Foundation grant pays for new kit for junior rugby team

Asda Foundation grant to Camp Hill Rugby Club

The junior players from Camp Hill Rugby Club will be taking to the pitch in smart new kits thanks to a £406 donation from the Asda Foundation.

Sandra Grice, the community champion at our Shirley store, visited the club to present the cheque.

She said: "I had a lovely morning with them and watching them train. There are over 350 children in the club, so training is very busy! The money will be used to help buy kit for the mini and junior section of the club."

The rugby club is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year and designed a new shirt using the original maroon colours of the club, as well as incorporating the skull and cross bones insignia on the shirt sleeve first sported by Cecil Cariss in the inaugural 1893 season.

The Camp Hill Mini & Junior section caters for over 350 boys and girls every Sunday, covering age groups from under 5s to under 17s.

Neil McCormack from the club said: "Asda is a great neighbour to the club, and has strengthened the union with funding for the new kit via the Asda Foundation, itself celebrating 30 years of support for local communities."
