Beverley Braves Rugby Club Chairman Beil Gay says the club are ‘overjoyed’ after they were awarded £2000 thanks to the Tesco Bags of Help scheme.
David Ryley, the Tesco Community Champion in Beverley and Team Manager Sian Spall visited the club to present them with their prize money which they won due to number of votes received by customers.
Commenting on the prize, Neil said;
“The Beverley Braves are overjoyed to be awarded the £2000 prize from the ‘Tesco bags of help’ customer vote for the months of January & February 2018.”
“This award will go towards our new facility which will be situated on Thurlow Avenue Playing fields, Molescroft.”
“It’s our hope that this facility will be ready very soon in 2018 and will help secure the long term future of the club whilst assisting young people to play sport and stay healthy.”
“We would particularly like to thank all of the Tesco customers who took the time to vote and would also like to congratulate St Nicholas Primary School on their success on achieving 1st place in the vote.”
To date local schools have also benefit from the incentive that has thousands of pounds donated to community based projects here in Beverley.
David says he is pleased to see another sports club benefit from the incentive that sees money collected from the sales of plastic bags used to fund projects in the community.
Commenting on his visit he said;
“We are so pleased that another of our local sports clubs will be benefiting from our Bags of Help community grant scheme.”
“If there are any other clubs or community groups who would like more information about how to apply for a grant, please contact me on 07736 483690 or via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be delighted to help you with your application.”
