Abercynon based HR and recruitment Connective Business Solutions has recently begun sponsorship of Pontypridd RFC’s Under 14’s team. The business has been supporting the local club for several years but wanted to expand their sponsorship to ensure funds are also provided to support the younger generations of Rugby players.
“I really believe in businesses helping their local community.” says Mark Coombes, Managing Director of Connective Business Solutions. “Growing up in the former mining town of Pontypridd gave me a valuable understanding of what being part of a community actually means for people. It has always been important to me to put something back into the community. I’ve supported Pontypridd RFC for many years’ and watched my first game stood on the terraces at Sardis Road in 1976 as a young boy. Since then sport has always played a significant role in my life. I’m still a huge fan of the club and have enjoyed supporting our children’s participation in their various sporting activities over many years.”
The company’s contribution to the club helps towards the upkeep of the facilities for both players and fans, maintaining existing equipment and investing in new equipment where possible.
“Sport teams and clubs have a great positive impact on families and local communities, providing health benefits as well as bringing people together.” continues Mr Coombes.”This is the reason the company decided to sponsor Pontypridd RFC, as it is a focal point for our community. We now also wanted to ensure funds are provided for the enthusiastic young players to make sure there are opportunities for them all to enjoy playing rugby and maybe, unearth the next Neil Jenkins.”
