Hardware.com is proud to be continuing their sponsorship of Cirencester Rugby Football Club (CRFC) and supporting their continued development. Being so close to Cirencester, Hardware Group feels strongly about giving something back and helping the local area. Especially since CRFC has one of the best rugby grounds in Gloucestershire and brings the surrounding communities together.
Since the beginning of our sponsorship, the club has been able to invest heavily in their pitches, kits, wash rooms and junior teams. The club has over 500 members and a strong following of spectators ranging from under 6’s through to seniors. There is a lot of focus put on the youth teams, with 350 children playing there every Sunday.
The clubhouse is used on match days and also offers a programme of activities through the year including 7’s tournaments, quizzes, Lion’s breakfasts, awards nights and of course, fundraising activities like the annual Beer Festival.
Hardware.com has previously recruited employees from the 54 players in the CRFC first team, and is keen to recruit more. We believe that players bring skills from the rugby pitch into the workplace. And that teamwork, communication skills and being competitive, help them in their day-to-day roles.
We are delighted to be able to continue to contribute to such a positive organisation that benefits the larger local community here in Cirencester, and we aim to be an employer of choice in the local area for the next generation of talented young people.
