GMB Sponsors a Proud Community

4 Mar 2008

As part of the region’s aim to become a truly community based union, we are proud sponsors of East Leeds Amateur Rugby League Football Club for the 2008 season. 

Receiving the £1,000 sponsorship cheque, Dave Cosgrove, Club Vice Chair and himself a GMB member for 12 years said “As an amateur club we are totally reliant on fund raising to survive.

The working Men’s club which is our base would have gone out of business years ago had it not been for the rugby club brining it new life.  We run teams from under 6s through to open age and this money will buy a new strip and training kit for a team and will last 2 to 3 years.  All at the club are extremely grateful to the GMB for their help.”
