Hadleigh RFC are asking their local community to support their bid by voting online for the club to win an exclusive end of season Rugby gala at their club, next April.
Forty rugby teams from all over the country will compete for votes to win the ultimate sporting prize as part of the grassroots campaign launched by premium home appliance brand, AEG.
The event will be hosted by England Rugby stars Will Greenwood and Austin Healey and will include expert coaching and team games with some extra special guests. The gala will go into the evening with a three course meal for 50 guests, a Q+A with the sporting heroes and a charity auction with special prizes to be donated by AEG.
Hadleigh RFC has already won AEG’s Kit and Laundry package as one of the 40 grassroots finalists. As part of the prize the rugby club designed their brand-new kit and received their very own top of the range AEG washing machine for the start of the new season, in order to keep them looking pristine on the field.
Voting for Hadleigh RFC began on Monday 5 November at www.aeg.co.uk/grassroots and supporters of the club will have until Monday 10 December to register their vote.
Former England rugby star Will Greenwood said: “AEG’s support of grassroots teams plays a very important part in local community sport. AEG’s sponsorship offers access to sporting facilities and equipment and encourages more people, whatever standard, to take up sport.
“This competition hopes to provide a boost to the winning team with some world class coaching and thank the unsung heroes. It will be an opportunity to reward the long serving parents, volunteers, and friends of the clubs. The people who are there every week from the start of the season to the end, in the wind and in the rain, win or lose.”
