Donation for east Cardiff rugby team

Rumney Rugby Club is the latest winner of Persimmon Homes East Wales’ Community Champions scheme.

The five-star developer behind the St Edeyrns development in the north-east of the city presented a cheque for £1,000 to club officials at their clubhouse.

The club – who play in the Championship East division of the WRU Admiral Men’s National League – has senior, youth, and junior teams and has been a central part of the community since its establishment in 1950.

The money will go towards the club’s general up-keep, so the players have everything they need to play the sport they love.

Persimmon currently has three and four-bed homes available for purchase at St Edeyrns Village from £269,995. The site includes a newly opened school, parks, and commercial units, creating a sense of community and place.

Commenting, Persimmon Homes East Wales Sales Director Victoria Williams said:

“We’re very happy to be lending a helping hand to Rumney RFC as our Community Champions scheme is designed to support great clubs like this that are such a pivotal part of their local area.

“It is a central part of Persimmon’s mission to leave a positive and lasting legacy in the area we build and that means giving organisations like Rumney RFC what they need to help them prosper.

“We’re also doing this not far away where we are developing a major and impressive site full of high-quality new homes alongside supporting infrastructure like schools, green spaces, and shops at St Edeyrns, where we hope our customers and future residents go on to become Rumney RFC fans.”

David Cook – Treasurer at Rumney RFC – added:

“The club is incredibly grateful to Persimmon for choosing us as a recipient of a donation from their Community Champions initiative, applications to which are very popular.

“The club has hundreds of members so a lot of people, young and old, will benefit from what these funds can do for the club which will help with equipment, kits, pitch maintenance, and day-to-day running costs.

“This club plays a big part in the community, providing a great outlet for players to improve their physical and mental health, and any support from prominent local businesses is greatly appreciated.”
