A TAYNUILT-based children’s rugby club has secured sponsorship for equipment and strips from a local fish farming company, ensuring children have everything they need to improve their game.
Etive Vikings RFC mini rugby club for P2-P7 has around 40 players attend- ing each weekly training session and has received a total of £1,500 in sponsorship from Dawnfresh, the UK’s largest producer of farmed trout with three sites in Argyll.
Greig McPhail, of Dawnfresh, visited a training session for the Vikings to see the new strips being worn and the new balls, cones and other equipment being used.
The company made the award as part of its commitment to supporting the communities around their farming operations.
Greig McFarlane, Etive Vikings coach, said: ‘It is vitally important that children are given the opportunity to take part in sport to help their physical and mental health.
‘Given our location, this can sometimes be difficult if people have to travel longer distances to other towns so with Etive Vikings we are trying to provide this activity in the local area.’
Etive Vikings celebrate new strips and equipment.
