Ash RFC Appreciate IPA

Andy Stevens and Steve Jones made the journey to Ash RFC just outside of Canterbury to hand over crates of Spirit of Rugby IPA to the village club punching above well their weight. Neil Parfitt Chairman accepted the #GiftOfBeer on behalf of the club and thanked the lodge saying…

“Thank you once again for coming down to see us with your generous gift to to the club . As you can imagine fund raising is very hard at the moment and every opportunity to bolster the funds is much appreciated. As you see we provide a safe and fun environment  for children and adults to enjoy rugby which all comes at a cost. We are run solely by  volunteers who give up so much of their time so people can play”.
