Society sponsors local Rugby team

Leeds Building Society has sponsored kits for the junior Rugby team at Wyke ARLFC.  

Alison Barrans, Customer Service Advisor at the Society’s Bradford branch, met the ‘Zigger Zaggers,’ - the three to five year old’s Rugby team the mutual has sponsored for £300.

She spent two hours with them, watching them practice their skills and talking to the adults who support their training.    

Alison said: “We are delighted to make this donation and support the team. As a building society, we are owned by our members and are pleased to support good causes in the communities where we and our members live and work.”

Phil Oliver, Sponsorship & Events co-ordinator at Wyke ARLFC, said: “Thanks to Leeds Building Society’s sponsorship we now have matching shirts for our younger players, making them feel part of the club to a greater extent.   

“On behalf of everyone playing, watching, managing and coaching many thanks for Leeds Building Society’s sponsorship, it is greatly appreciated.”
