Aramis Rugby offers support to Devon clubs

27 Jun 2020 22:18 | Devon RFU

Aramis Rugby has offered to support every club in Devon with a financial grant of £250. 

All clubs will be offered a voucher to spend on buying anything from their range of training equipment and clothing. 

They ask that either the club chairman or secretary to get in touch with their wish list and can give them a call on 01769 550284 or send an email to sales@aramisrugby.co.uk 

Clubs have been sent details of the offer and available items via GMS.  The offer is valid until October 31, 2020 and there will be only one voucher per club.

Devon RFU Geoff Simpson chairman has strongly welcomed the initiative.

A support fund had quickly been established by Devon RFU to provide help with emergency funding for problems experienced as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Although it became clear that the majority of clubs were managing the situation sensibly and effectively, a common concern is the costs of starting up again when circumstances allow.

Although resumption of playing may be a long way off, the RFU has now produced a road map towards that goal.

The offer from Aramis Rugby is therefore some help along the way and very much appreciated. As a Constituent Body, Devon expects its role in the 2020/21 season, whenever it starts, to be one of supporting and managing its member clubs through the reboot of rugby in the county.
