We are raising funds to take our full squad of U13's rugby players to Ireland, to compete in County Cork rugby festival at midleton college. As part of this we are asking for support to fund a touring match top and shirt for all the players.
About the project
Rugby is so much more then just a game. For us it's a chance to bring together a group of boys and promote at every opportunity the sense of teamwork and commorandary. It is a strong belief that through playing the game and working together fund raising, the players will develop positive memories, friends for life and a close network to help support each other as they grow up.
Over the past 5 years the squad has grown from 8 to 26 players encompassing a mix of skills and natural talent. There is no A or B team we just enjoy playing and we are supported by passionate parents.
Each year we have taken the players further a field to tour at festivals or clubs. Travelling away boardens their horizons, allowing them to see just how good other teams are. Most importantly being away as a squad brings the players together and allows their characters to come out off the pitch amongst friends. We've never brought a trophy back, yet!! but they all have a lot of good memories, developed skills and experiences to take away.
As coaches, players and parents we have been fund raising to create this opportunity to take the boys to Ireland happen. There are Bingo, quiz, karoake nights, fashion shows, organised working parties, 2p/1p collections, bag packing and many more events. In total we need £9000, so far we have raised just short of £5000, over half way there!
Our project here is to raise £2000 to pay for the tour tops and shirts. This will make the team feel as one squad coming together with their own brand. As part of this we asked the players to design their team tour shirt and below is the winning one by Joel Pittard. We are looking for three main sponsors to repersent our team whos' name/logo will be printed in the spaces available. One on the chest plate and the two shoulder strips. These shirts will be a major part of the tour to Ireland and will be a permanate reminder of their experience. Details of this are in our rewards column but all your contribution whatever amount will help push us to achieve our goal. Many, many thanks.
Bridport U13's titans.
