As part of our longstanding drive to support local communities White Cross Ring Co Ltd and YORGRIP have become proud sponsors of two local junior rugby teams.
Thomas Horner, Managing Director, former rugby player and keen sports fan was delighted to offer Bradford Salem Rugby Union Under 13s and North Leeds Leopards Rugby League Under 11s kit sponsorship.
“We are delighted to be sponsoring these local junior teams and we wish them all the best for the forthcoming season. White Cross Ring will definitely be cheering them on from the side-lines.”
Supporting grassroots rugby is a means of engaging with local communities, encouraging youngsters to lead healthier lives, develop teamwork skills and foster social interactions. These are skills for life and when these youngsters enter the workforce they will be well equipped.
Bradford Salem U13s have had an excellent season and have grown from strength to strength achieving some fantastic victories over local teams.
The North Leeds Leopards Under 11s have pulled out some great performances over the season and have even had the honour of playing at half time during Leeds Rhinos games. This month they are busy raising money for Prostate Cancer UK by taking part in Junior Warrior.
Our company founder Brian Vierod was also a keen rugby player and made many appearances for Halifax Rugby League during the 1950s. He would be very proud that White Cross Ring Co Ltd continues to support the sport he loved.
Rugby is very much part of the White Cross Ring family.
