KELTBRAY TEAMS UP WITH LEGENDS RUGBY

a UK leader in specialist engineering, construction, demolition, decommissioning, remediation and environmental services, has partnered with theLegends Rugby Festival 2014, which takes place at Wimbledon RFC on 12 July. With over half of the AVIVA Premiership’s teams signed up, 2013 champions Saracens Legends will be defending their title.

Last year’s Festival played host to more than 3,000 people, and this year’s charitable event promises to be even bigger and better, with legends of the game, including Lewis Moody, Sam Vesty and Henry Paul, pulling on their boots to compete once again. The Festival provides fun for all the whole family with tournaments for Veterans, Ladies, Minis, Touch, City League and, new for 2014, netball.

This year, Legends Rugby Festival will be supporting its two charity partners The Tag Rugby Trust and School of Hard Knocks. The Tag Rugby Trust is a charity designed to facilitate mass participation rugby and become self-sustaining over time by promoting inclusivity, fun, safety and community ideals and develop grass roots rugby in lower tier rugby nations. Whilst the School Of Hard Knocks is a social charity that uses sport to tackle issues surrounding unemployment, antisocial behaviour, crime and health, using its wide range of high profile individuals from within and outside the sport.

Legends Rugby Tournament Director Ian Dawson said: “It’s great to have Keltbray on board this year as a partner. Keltbray’s values of tackling disadvantage in the community through volunteering and by providing work and training opportunities, have strong synergies with those of Legends Rugby, The Tag Rugby Trust and School of Hard Knocks. They are also sponsoring the Quins Legends team this year and we look forward to watching them try and take the crown from Saracens Legends.”

Keltbray’s Managing Director of Rail & Infrastructure, Phill Price, agrees: “Keltbray’s goal is to be best in class and make a positive contribution to the world we live in. This meansundertaking work to award-winning standards, but also by supporting our communities by using local labour and suppliers, and by addressing challenges such as long-term and youth unemployment through work-based training and placements. Just like in rugby, respect, discipline and inclusivity are key to success when working for Keltbray too.”
