Sigma was proud to be the main sponsor for the Sale Colts (under 18s) Rugby Club for the third year running, with our sponsorship continuing to help the club to fund its team kit.
We previously donated £2,000 to the club’s local schools’ scheme, which offers introductory rugby lessons to children across a number of schools within the area, including Flixton Girl’s School (pictured). Last year, the popular initiative taught rugby skills to around 2,500 boys and girls.
Andy Hughes, community coach at the club, said: “Flixton Girls would like to thank Sigma Capital for their kind sponsorship of the Sale FC Community Rugby Programme at the school.
“This has enabled the girls to have weekly extracurricular rugby sessions after school with me, which has led to the girls progressing their sporting and personal development, whilst preparing for their first ever rugby game next month, a huge testament to the girls’ progress and attitude. Women’s rugby is an ever-growing sport in Manchester and its fantastic that these girls have the opportunity to become part of the rugby family.”
