Dunbar Minis score our support for seventh year
We have confirmed our support for Dunbar Rugby Football Club’s annual Minis Tournament for a record seventh year in a row. This year’s event will be staged at Hallhill Healthy Living Centre in Dunbar on Sunday 14th May,and will attract around 500 children from ages P3 to P7 from across East Lothian, the Borders, the North of England and Edinburgh to take part.
Sponsoring the Dunbar Minis Tournament is a great chance to once again get involved in the local community as Karen Armstrong, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, says: “We’re delighted to continue our support for this very successful local event that has grown year on year.
“It’s also become a popular fixture in the local community calendar, with over 1,000 spectators visiting the club to enjoy this fun family event that encourages a healthy participation in sport.”
David Wilson, Dunbar Rugby Club President, adds: “Following the successful track record of this popular event, we’re looking forward to creating an even bigger and better event this year. Already it’s attracted teams from across East Lothian and Edinburgh to get involved. We’re thrilled to have secured Taylor Wimpey East Scotland as our main sponsor for the seventh year in a row.
“Our tournament is the only minis event that recognises every player from every team with a participation medal, and Taylor Wimpey sponsorship helps us to maintain this key aspect of the event whilst helping us to reinforce that getting involved and playing a sport for fun and fitness is a positive life choice.
“The club enjoys fantastic support from its sponsors, volunteers, coaches, referees, parents and most importantly every minis rugby player who ensures that the tournament remains a great success each year
“We’re looking forward to one of the biggest fixtures in the club’s calendar, and we hope to see as many members of the local community at the event as possible to support their local team!”
