Selco Builders Warehouse has launched its “Growing Grassroots” campaign in conjunction with the Rugby Football League, of which it is an official partner.
Any grassroots rugby league club can enter the competition and will have the chance of winning a prize of £2,000 worth of building materials, a visit to the club from England players and tickets to one of the national team’s Autumn Series internationals against Tonga.
Carine Jessamine, marketing director at Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “We have a long and proud record of supporting the sport of rugby league over the last decade.
“We have backed a number of different professional clubs, including Salford Red Devils currently, are supporting the national team through the RFL and were an official partner of the Rugby League.
“Our Growing Grassroots campaign is designed to help a local rugby league club which does outstanding work in its local community carry out vital work to its playing or training facilities.”
To enter clubs must explain in no more than 100 words how the £2,000 donation would benefit them and entries can be made at: https://www.selcobw.com/info/growing-grassroots-rugby-league-competition
Bobby Bahadori, head of partnerships for Rugby League Commercial, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for grassroots clubs and typifies Selco’s commitment to supporting rugby league at all levels.
“An injection of £2,000 into a grassroots club will create opportunities for vital work to be done which, without this funding, may otherwise be left to go into a state of disrepair.
“With the England player visit and tickets to one of the big games against Tonga included in the prize, it’s a fantastic all-round package for a grassroots club to win.”
