SSG Support Plymouth Children Rugby Team at Twickenham Stadium
- Date: Wednesday 15th May 2019
We were proud to have supported Devonport Services Rugby Club Under 11s team on their games at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 4th May.
The boys’ team played a mini-tournament, both as pre-match and half-time entertainment during the annual Army Navy Rugby Match in front of thousands of spectators.
The team were able to attend the weekend due to a lot of work behind the scenes from parents, coaches and sponsors including SSG, Need-A-Cab, Kit World, Clarity Wealth Management, Just Enough Brave, Roast Coffee and Plymouth Boat Trips.
They also completed a range of fundraising events which consisted of supermarket bag packing and cake sales, raising over £4,400 to help pay for transport and the weekend’s expenses.
Club Treasurer Kim Hilland was delighted with everyone’s efforts commenting, “We’ve all invested a lot of time, funds and effort into making this trip possible but most importantly we’ve had lots of fun achieving our goals!” She went on to say, “Special mention also needs to be made to our generous corporate sponsors, Need-A-Cab, Kit World, Clarity Wealth Management, SSG Training and Consultancy, Just Enough Brave, Roast Coffee and Plymouth Boat Trips. Their support has proved invaluable and helped push us over the line!”
Mark Salmon, Managing Director of SSG, said “We are so proud to support the boys and to see how far they have come. From playing in Plymouth, to playing on the big screen in front of thousands of people at Twickenham Stadium, to then go on and win their tournament is a great feat that they should be delighted with!”
