Grant UK sponsors local grassroots mini and junior rugby teams

Grant UK is pleased to announce its support of another local children’s sports club with the sponsorship of Melksham RFC’s mini and junior section rugby teams. For the 2021/22 season, Grant UK is the main sponsor of these teams, supporting them at all their fixtures.

The Melksham RFC was formed in 1978 and has become a permanent fixture within the town ever since at its home ground of Oakfields. Sharing their grounds with the local football club, Melksham RFC has built a reputation for being strong opposition to fellow local clubs. In 1991, the Club expanded with the formation of its Mini’s section and this has led to the development of young players and home-grown talent. Today, there are eleven junior teams as well as the senior men’s and women’s teams.

During this season, Grant UK’s logo will be positioned on the shirt fronts and shorts of all the players who form the junior and mini section teams, totaling 195 boys and girls. Between now and May 2022, these children will be busy training and playing rugby to their highest standards, proudly wearing the navy and mid-blue kits of the Melksham RFC colours. As a headline sponsor, Grant UK also has perimeter boarding around the grounds too and the Company is looking forward to playing its own part in the Club’s season.

“Grant UK is proud to sponsor another grassroots sports club which is supporting children in the local area near to our Company head office here in Wiltshire,” writes Anna Wakefield, Head of Marketing at Grant UK. “Melksham RFC has a strong set of teams who are all ready for the rugby season and we are excited to be one of the headline sponsors supporting the young players. Grant UK’s Commercial Technical Manager, Neil Sawers, is a coach for the Club so we will be cheering them all on at their games this season.”
