Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Five star homebuilder donates £250 to local Rugby club in Leamington Spa

Leading developer David Wilson Homes has provided a £250 donation to a rugby club in Leamington Spa, to help fund the purchase of brand new training balls for the under 6 team just in time for the new season.

The donation from the five star Solihull-based homebuilder comes from the David Wilson Homes Community Fund scheme, which aims to support and improve organisations and charities in the developer’s operational areas.

Old Leamingtonians RUFC is a rugby squad formed in 1931, currently fielding the adult women and men’s teams, the ‘Hornets’ mixed ability team, and a strong Mini’s and Junior Section including under 6s through to under 16s.

The sports group is reliant on the assistance of local business to ensure the progression and improvements of its club, as well as maintaining its services to the community.

Lucas Wager, Mini’s and Juniors Chairman at the club, said:

“Our group of Under 6s can have up to 50 children training with us on a Sunday and it’s important to us that they have fun and want to come back every week.

“Ensuring they can have a ball in hand during the sessions is vital to maintaining their commitment to the club, so we’d like to say a big thank you to David Wilson Homes for their generous donation and helping us to encourage the active outdoors lifestyle that can be delivered through rugby.”

Steve Barton, Senior Sales Manager at David Wilson Homes Mercia, said:

“As a leading developer, we aim to make a difference to the surrounding areas in which we build, and it’s important we offer a helping hand to local organisations whenever we can.

“We are thrilled to have helped Old Leamingtonians improve their club’s services and wish them all the best with their games in the future!”

Old Leamingtonians RUFC Mini’s and Juniors teams currently train every Sunday from 10:30am at The Crofts on Bericote Road and always welcome new players of all ages and abilities.
