RGB Building Supplies is delighted to announce its renewed commitment to supporting local rugby clubs across the region, coinciding with the much-anticipated start of the Rugby World Cup.
As a new official partner of the Cornish Pirates, one of the shirt sponsors of Redruth RFC’s first team, and player sponsor of Matthew Hague and Jonny Fairclough from Tiverton RFC, RGB is reinforcing its dedication to nurturing talent and bolstering the local communities it serves. The company recognises the vital role that rugby clubs play in fostering young talent and providing a sense of unity and belonging; however, clubs often face financial challenges that threaten their existence. This is where businesses like RGB Building Supplies step in to make a significant impact.
RGB's sponsorship initiatives aim to provide crucial financial backing to clubs that often rely on the support of local businesses to maintain their facilities, invest in training programmes, and sustain the sport.
The Cornish Pirates play in the RFU English Championship – the second tier of English rugby – and provide regular coaching clinics for up and coming young players, a schools programme and many other initiatives.
Redruth RFC, a competitor in the National League 2 South, holds a prominent position in the town. The club comprises three senior men's teams and boasts a thriving youth program, with over 300 registered children participating in age groups from under 7s to under 16s. Additionally, Redruth RFC proudly fields four girls' teams, including under 11s, under 12s, under 14s, and under 16s.
Tiverton RFC is an essential component of the town's sporting landscape, competing in the Counties 1 Tribute Western West league. The club features three senior men's teams and offers a comprehensive array of junior teams, ranging from under 7s to under 18s.
Richard Jayne, branch manager at RGB Building Supplies in Penzance, commented:
"Supporting local communities has been a cornerstone of our company's ethos, and we believe that backing rugby clubs is a significant part of this commitment. Local clubs are often the lifeblood of towns and villages, and the excitement generated by the Rugby World Cup provides a unique opportunity to inspire more young players to get involved.
Paul Hague, branch manager at RGB Building Supplies in Tiverton, added:
“RGB Building Supplies is proud to support teams like Cornish Pirates and Redruth RFC, helping them to operate and develop players – who knows, our support may help to nurture the next Maro Itoje or Jason Robinson."
