Caswells On the Ball with Rugby Club Donation
At Caswells, we love to invest in our staff and our community— it is so rewarding to give back to the wonderful people who facilitate what we do. That’s why we asked our staff members to suggest charities or local teams which we could support, especially those that they were personally close to. Amanda Finney asked us to support Billingham Rugby Club and we were delighted to do so, with Peter Caswell offering a £200 donation.
In response to the donation, Amanda said: “I would just like to stress the importance and pivotal role the Rugby Club plays in so many people’s lives, whether through the playing side or the social aspect (and, in many cases, both!)”
She and her family have been involved with the club for over 20 years, during which her husband and two sons have benefitted both personally and professionally, with all three eventually transitioning from playing to volunteering.
The club offers teams from under six years old to the under eighteen division, emphasising friendship, loyalty, respect and inclusivity. As a result of their involvement, often in a voluntary capacity, many parents foster friendships extending beyond Billingham Rugby Club.
Otherwise supported by Parent and Player/Social membership fees, Caswells’ £200 donation will go towards the Youth Section of the club which has grown in numbers after lockdown. The club’s Volunteer Youth Chairman, Colin Snowdon, intends to spend this money on new pads, tag belts and balls. This will allow more children to access the benefits of sport and community spirit, and continue the club’s legacy for years to come.
Caswells shares Amanda’s pride in the community and is delighted that our donation has been “well received, and will be put to excellent use”.
