MAN sponsors rugby initiative
MAN Truck & Bus UK has partnered with Bath Rugby to encourage more youngsters into rugby with a special community rugby event. The two organisations arranged for some local rugby stars to train over 100 children from the town. Pupils from schools within the White Horse Federation enjoyed two hours of rugby training at the town’s Supermarine Rugby Club. Five players from Bath Rugby, including England Under 20s stars Tom Woolstencroft, Tom Ellis and Will Homer, provided special coaching sessions.
MAN Truck & Bus UK’s MD, Simon Elliott, said, ‘It is really important for us to be involved in initiatives such as this as they can play such a major role in the local community. All the children seemed to thoroughly enjoy the day, and obviously the training was second-to-none for their age group and they will all have taken something away with them – and you never know, we may even have inspired a star of the future.’
