Scunthorpe based logistics company Clugston Distribution, part of the Clugston Group of companies, is pleased to announce it has signed a sponsorship deal with Scunthorpe under 12’s rugby union club.
Clugston Distribution and the Clugston Group, are well known throughout the region for engaging with and supporting the local community as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The company was looking at ways to further increase its support for the local community when the opportunity arose.
Head of logistics at Clugston Distribution, David Heath said, “Sport is an excellent way of bringing the community together and it is really important to all of us at Clugston to find ways of demonstrating our support and commitment to the region. Scunthorpe is where we started over 76 years ago and we have grown as a business with the support of people from the local community.”
The company already supports a number of local charities and organisations in the Scunthorpe region, including Scunthorpe United. Mr. Heath went on to say, “We are really looking forward to supporting the under 12’s and seeing players come through into the senior team.”
As part of the sponsorship the company’s logo will be on the team’s new shirts. Matt Tate, the coach for the U12’s team said, “We are delighted that a well known local business like Clugston Distribution has decided to sponsor our shirts and support the team. It is great to be supported by a company with such close ties to the region. The new kit looks fantastic.”
