Support UK are delighted to announce that we are now official kit sponsors for the newly formed Garden City U16’s rugby team, which is a collaboration of Letchworth and Welwyn Garden City U16 youth teams.
We were thrilled to welcome Welwyn RFC President, Mark Elliott to our office for an official handover with our Managing Director, Martin Green and have the opportunity to take a photo of the rugby shirt before the blood, sweat, tears and mud are added to it. Mark, or “Shabby” as he is known to his friends, is thoroughly delighted with the partnership.
When asked why he decided to sponsor the kit, Martin commented “Sport is an invaluable part of life. We hear so much about mental health nowadays, especially in young people and sport promotes overall wellbeing through the natural highs that endorphins bring. And with so much online gaming and a huge spike in childhood obesity, it’s refreshing to see young people enjoying sport in the old-fashioned way! Sport also helps develop some key skills that are transferrable to the workplace, such as resilience, determination, discipline, communication, leadership and teamwork. Bearing all this in mind, my passion for the sport and the fact that young people need all the help they can get, we decided to sponsor the Garden City U16 team. We wish the team great success for the coming season”
There is some wonderful talent within the team and we are looking forward to watching them from the side-lines.
