Upton ARLF Rugby Club
It’s been a busy start to 2021 and as we look towards what hopefully will feel like some sense of normality, we wanted to share an update on an important sponsorship. We have recently donated to local Rugby Club Upton ARLFC providing them with important funds to help them get back on their feet after the pandemic.
Fortunately, as a manufacturer we have continued operating throughout the pandemic however have seen first hand the challenges it has faced to businesses, individuals and local sports clubs. Upton ARLFC relies heavily on player and family contributions along with sponsorships to survive. The junior teams are all self-funded so any contributions go towards the cost of kits. With the latest lockdown and various restrictions around group sports the majority of last season wasn’t able to take place. The club have also been unable to run any fundraisers or club nights where potential funds could have been raised. With rugby and groups sports now able to commence any donations can help support the club’s road to restarting training and matches.
About The Club
Upton ARLFC are based in Pontefract not far from our manufacturing facility and have multiple rugby teams for open age as well as junior teams from under 7’s up to under 18’s. The club was first formed in 1979 and in that time have provided important community sports for local children and teenagers with the club having many successes. The club provides fantastic sports and social opportunities for junior boys and girls but also to parents, grandparents and other fans in the local community. It is an organisation where everyone is welcome and all levels of playing ability are catered for, from mini and junior levels through to seniors playing nationally. .
