It is amazing the ideas that you can have in a rugby club bar!
Club Chairman Danny Griffiths and club stalwart Stephen Butler, were in deep discussion towards the end of the season during one late night at Old Deer Park. It was a frustration that they could not find a Ukrainian rugby jersey, to show their support and solidarity, especially with not too distant memories remembering a club tour to Kiev.
The idea was formed! What if we could create a jersey that could be sold and raise money for the war efforts in Ukraine. The natural next step was to touch base with club official kit and merchandise partner Rhino. Needless to say, Rhino have taken the idea and run with it – they have been amazing as always and many thanks to Dave Reynish.
This week, with the permission and support of the Ukrainian Rugby Federation, the jersey was launched and raising much needed funds for the Leleka Foundation (Ukraine): https://www.facebook.com/lelekafoundation
This is such a a worthy cause and the funds are much needed! We only need to look at the news on a daily basis to see why.
So, if you can help and you do fancy a jersey, please think about buying one as all profits will go straight to the Ukraine. Use the Link: https://rhino.direct/products/rhino-ukraine-rugby-jersey?utm_content=Facebook_UA&utm_source=facebook&variant=42236974923974&fs=e&s=cl
