Exiles receive funding from Aviva Community Fund

19-01-2019

We’re really pleased that Aviva have chosen the Exiles as one of the recipients of their Community Fund in 2018.

The Aviva Community Fund offers community groups the chance to get funding for an important cause in their community. They want to make a difference to causes big and small with these much-needed funds.

Winners are those groups that get enough votes from friends, family and supporters in their community, so from the Exiles a huge THANK YOU to everyone who voted.

Applying for the funding was the idea of Maria and Stephen Clifford, two of our fantastic volunteers, who have been involved for the past couple of years after seeing how much their two sons enjoyed playing for the team.

“This funding will enable the Exiles to upgrade their kit storage facilities which is desperately needed" they said on applying, “The club has grown so much in the past few years, they really need somewhere safe and secure for it all so they can continue getting new players from all backgrounds involved in the sport. This is what the Exiles family is all about”.

Martin Jefkins, from the club committee, was especially pleased with the award. “This is fantastic news for us as it means we can invest in more things our players will see and use in training, and it's all thanks to the inspiration of volunteers with the club. We can’t thanks Maria and Stephen enough, awards like this make a huge difference to the team, and allow us to get more young people involved with our great sport”

If you’d like to be part of this great club, either playing, coaching or volunteering, please get in touch.
