Vote for a new Shelford Rugby Club kit to be worn by first team as fundraiser for the NHS
An initiative to keep members engaged during lockdown will become an NHS fundraiser at Shelford Rugby Club.
When rugby was stopped in March, the Davey Field club decided to invite youth players and supporters to take part in a concept to design a kit.
The templates were produced urging budding designers to be as creative and colourful as possible.
A shortlist of five has been created, and the winning entry will then be turned into a real kit which will be worn by the Shelford first team in the London League 1N on the club’s community day.
After the match, the kits will be auctioned off and all proceeds raised will be donated to the NHS.
“The Shelford Rugby Club Community Day is intended to bring the local community together as we offer free entry to local residents, there will be a number of matches to watch, fun and games to keep kids occupied, plenty of good food and drink on offer as well as some post-match entertainment,” said Shelford secretary Mikael Biard.
“We're planning for our Community Day to be held on the day of our first home game of the season, but this might change depending on the government's guidelines regarding social distancing, so watch this space in terms of further news on the date for this.”
