The under-18s team at Randalstown Rugby Club are taking to the pitch in new kits thanks to a donation of £1,000 from the Asda Foundation.
Our Antrim store's community champion Barbara Logan called in to see the players in their smart new kits and said: "It was great to meet Randalstown Rugby Club Youth with their new kit they got with the sporting grant from the Asda Foundation.
"The club would like to thank the Foundation very much for their donation. They're an important hub in our community for young people to come together, stay active, and play competitive sport. I’ve worked with Randalstown Rugby Club for several years now, and it’s great to hear how the new kits will grow a sense of team spirit for the young players.”
Founded in 1945, the club has over 180 young members. Roisin McDonald, Randalstown Rugby Club Youth chairperson, said: “We would like to say a massive thank you to Asda for its help in purchasing new kits for our U18 boys’ team – and to Barbara for her ongoing support.
"This is the second generous donation to our club and, at a time when it has proven difficult to get sponsorship, a funding boost is certainly welcomed.
“We aim to improve the confidence and wellbeing of local young people through sport, and our players gain lasting friendships. The ongoing support we receive from Asda through bag-packs and donations is amazing."
