Nisa Local St Neots donates £500 for new rugby kits to St Neots Rugby Club
Nisa Local St Neots, a convenience store owned and operated by TYS Retail, has donated £500 to St Neots Rugby Club through Nisa's charity Making a Difference Locally (MADL). The donation will be used to purchase new rugby kits for the club's youth teams.
"We are delighted to support St Neots Rugby Club," said Leon Swanwick, Store Manager at Nisa Local St Neots. "The club does a great job of providing opportunities for young people in our community to get involved in rugby. We hope our donation will help the club continue to grow and thrive."
St Neots Rugby Club is a community-based club that has been in existence for over 100 years. The club offers rugby platforms for players of all ages and abilities.
"We are very grateful to Nisa Local for their donation," said Phil Yates, president of St Neots Rugby Club. "The money will be used to purchase new rugby kits for our youth teams. Our current kits are old and worn out, and they are not representative of the quality of rugby we play at St Neots Rugby Club. The new kits will give our players a sense of pride and belonging, and they will help us to attract new players to the club."
The donation from MADL is a significant boost for St Neots Rugby Club. The club is currently looking to expand its youth development programs and the donation will help the club make that happen.
"We are excited to use this donation to grow our youth development programs," said Yates. "We believe that rugby is a great sport for young people, and we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to get involved."
Making a Difference Locally is part of Nisa’s commitment to giving back to the communities it serves. Since its inception, the program has donated over £16 million to local charities and community organisations.
"We are delighted to be able to support St Neots Rugby Club with this donation," said Kate Carroll, Nisa’s Head of charity "We believe that it is important to support local communities and we are proud to be able support a Nisa retailer to make a difference to the lives of young people in St Neots."
