AJW Group, the world-leading independent specialist in the global management of aircraft spares, headquartered in Slinfold, has become the sponsor of Horsham Ladies Rugby Team.
The sponsorship will see the First Women’s Team, which trains at the Coolhurst Ground in Horsham, receive new AJW branded training kit ahead of their first match later this month.
The Team was selected because of its value to the local community and commitment to encouraging the next generation of local women to play rugby. As part of this commitment, it is planning to work with local schools to develop rugby talent in the local area.
The sponsorship is the latest marker of AJW’s commitment to supporting local teams. Current sponsorships deals include being the main sponsor of Wisborough Green Cricket Club, a sponsor of the first team of Loxwood Football Club, and a sponsor of the annual golf fundraiser for Chestnut Tree House, the children’s hospice for Sussex.
Christopher Whiteside, CEO and President of AJW Group, said: “Horsham Ladies Rugby Team is a force for good in the local community. With our sponsorship, I hope that they can continue their great work with local schools and young people by encouraging females in Horsham, and throughout Sussex, to play rugby at a local level.
“As a large employer in Sussex, AJW is committed to supporting the community and enabling people to embrace and fulfil their passions in whatever sport they choose, and our extensive local sponsorship portfolio is a testament to this.”
