Daniel Killick, Director, Chestertons says …

“As a lead Sponsor of London Welsh Rugby Club, I am delighted that Chestertons is a founding Business Partner to the Club’s Careers Hub. It is a forward thinking initiative offering much needed guidance to help players develop their professional careers in the capital. Moreover, as a company, we have benefited personally from the manner in which the Hub offers advice and mentoring, having recruited directly through the relationship, capitalising upon the transferable skills such as work ethic, team ethos and personal drive that is an essential part of high performance success in sport and rugby at London Welsh RFC in particular.”

“Life-long learning and Apprenticeships are at the heart of everything we do”

Cai Griffiths, Commercial Manager of Impact Futures and Director of Rugby at LWRFC says …

“I have been very lucky to see first hand what the London Welsh Careers Hub has offered players since its inception over 2 years ago. The groundwork that the Hub team has put in is exceptional and to date they have helped over 50 players across the Men’s and Women’s squads.

As part of the onward development of the Careers Hub, is the objective to provide services to the broader club membership and their businesses, not just the players.

I am proud for my company to become a founding business partner to the LW Careers Hub wherein we can help evolve businesses of Club members, and consequently their employees, through our training courses and apprenticeships especially in the troubled times in which we now find ourselves.”

Impact Futures

As a proud Welshman living in London I have been delighted and honoured to be involved sponsoring the mighty London Welsh RFC for these past 3years helping in some way to fuel the return to the higher Divisions.

London Welsh and Kingswood are both driven to achieve their ambitions and similarly work as strong teams, with excellent work ethics doing all they can for clients and fans alike.

Coming from a close-knit community in the Valleys the fact that London Welsh has such a strong community connection creates a wonderful feeling of home-from-home and I relish the time I get to spend at the Club.

I very much look forward to fulfilling my commitment to 5years of Sponsorship and to continue being part of such a fabulous and historic Club.
