Newport Rugby Club scores with donation from Bloor Homes

Newport Rugby Club has been boosted by an incredible £5,000 seasonal donation from Bloor Homes.

The money will go towards improving facilities at the club for players and visitors and buying much-needed equipment. This season, the stadium will be called ‘Stade Bloor’, as well as the company having the opportunity to advertise within the team’s match programmes and having the Bloor logo around the pitch. 

The partnership is ideal for both Newport Rugby Club and Bloor Homes – as the housebuilder has a new development called Hutchison Gate currently being built to the south of Newport.

Paul Degg, Regional Managing Director for Bloor Midlands, said: “Supporting local communities to our developments is just part of what we do here at Bloor – and beyond our necessary S106 contributions we always try to give where we can, to facilities that local people use and love.

“Newport Rugby Club was an obvious choice for us to give money to – it’s run by passionate volunteers and we very much wanted to help the teams in their upcoming season, to enhance the facilities wherever we can.

“It’s great to know that supporters will be cheering from ‘Stade Bloor’, and we look forward to supporting the team in the seasons to come.”

Matt Bowyer, one of the secretaries from Newport Rugby Club, said: “Five thousands pounds can go a long way in a club our size, so we’re really grateful to get this money to improve facilities and enhance the experience for both our team and our supporters.”
