Bradfords Building Supplies is sponsoring a new Community Cup competition with the Cornish Pirates rugby team, while its existing partnership with the Exeter Chiefs continues for another season.
The Bradfords Community Cup partnership with the Cornish Pirates will get underway on March 30, bringing together around 200 children from primary schools around West Cornwall in a Festival of Rugby. Two teams will be selected to show off their skills in a Finals Day on 23 April.
The news comes soon after more than 100 children competed in the final of this year’s Bradfords Community Cup with the Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club – the major regional tag rugby festival for under-8s held at Sandy Park.
Sponsored by Bradfords Building Supplies and hosted by the Exeter Chiefs, the Cup is designed to foster grassroots interest in sport in local communities around the region.
Competing teams included Tavistock RFC, Newton Abbot RFC, Barnstaple RFC and Plymstock Albion Oaks RFC.
David Young, CEO of Bradfords Building Supplies, said: “Seeing the children, their coaches and parents come together for such an exciting tournament and the beams of pride as they received their trophies was fantastic.”
“We have strong links with the local communities where we operate around the South West and supporting the next generation is a big part of that. Both our partnership with the Exeter Chiefs and our new Community Cup with the Cornish Pirates are therefore a great fit for us and we hope these children will continue to pursue their enjoyment of sport in the years ahead.”
