Project Manager at Mulberry Homes Chris Greenwood has secured sponsorship for his team Bourne Rugby Club from Mulberry Homes as part of the housebuilder’s commitment to local communities across the Midlands.
The team, who play at Milking Nook Drove in Bourne, received the £250 donation from the housebuilder recently which will now be used for purchasing new kit and training equipment.
The funding will also go towards a new minibus for the club to use when travelling to and from away matches.
Mulberry Homes’ head office is based in Creaton, Northamptonshire and they build new properties across the wider Midlands for a range of different homebuyers. Chris has just finished managing the Weldon development Winchelsea Gate and will soon be moving onto a brand new site in Great Bowden, Heathcote Grange.
Chris Greenwood, Vice-Captain of Bourne Rugby Club and Project Manager for Mulberry Homes, said: “I’m extremely grateful as it really helps the club function from minis rugby to senior rugby.
“Grassroots rugby clubs heavily depend on donations and this will help massively in the development of the club, helping purchase key training aids to use in sessions.
“I think it is very important to highlight all of the work Mulberry Homes is doing for local communities – they really care about the environment and areas they build in.
“They strive to create new communities and this donation is key to help a community club stay active.”
The club has brought together all kinds of players of different ages and abilities and the funding will contribute towards helping coaches improve the confidence and skills of the team.
The team train every Monday and Wednesday and play their matches on Saturdays.
Providing support for the team hasn’t been the only priority for Mulberry Homes, as the developer has also eased Chris and his family into their relocation from Surrey to Bourne.
He, his soon-to-be wife Jenny and their two-year-old daughter Emilia have all found the housebuilder has gone above and beyond in accommodating their move and have given them a backing that’s ensured they’re settled into the new area.
Kerry Jones, Head of Sales at Mulberry Homes, said: “We are thrilled to have been able to support Chris and his team and contribute to keeping Bourne Rugby Club active.
“With community always at the forefront of our minds, clubs and groups like this are a great example of a neighbourhood that is thriving with activity and opportunity, something which is fantastic for us to see.”
