ALL WEATHER GEAR FOR STORNOWAY RUGBY JUNIORS
Stornoway Rugby Football Club juniors are dressed for training in all weathers in branded club kit due to a donation of £3,000 from community wind farm charity Point and Sandwick Trust (PST).
The grant means the club have been able to provide weatherproof training tops to junior club members free of charge, saving families the expense and furthering a sense of team spirit and club pride among the youngsters taking part.
Iain GG Campbell, Stornoway Rugby Football Club Coach Development Manager, said the club was incredibly grateful for the donation – as it had been hoping to buy such tops for a few years but had not previously had the money.
PST board member Sonja Macleod and trust Chair Norman Mackenzie said: ‘We are proud to support Stornoway Rugby Club with their effort to involve the new generation in their sport.’
