Mansfield based industrial supplies firm Hall-Fast, has extended its North Nott's Community Partnership with Championship team Nottingham Rugby. The latest deal confirms the multi-award winning company as one of the RFU Championship club's leading community partners for a fourth year.

Hall-Fast managing director Malk Hall has been the driving force behind the Green and Whites' scheme in North Nottinghamshire which has seen the Meadow Lane club deliver coaching to thousands of students within primary, secondary and SEN schools across the region.


"I am very pleased to extend our North Nottinghamshire Community Partnership with Nottingham Rugby, the work that the club has done over the last few years within the area has been tremendous in primary and secondary schools and also within the Fountaindale SEN School," Mr Hall said.  "This programme means much more than just delivering coaching and expanding the Green and Whites reach across the Shire; we are all intent on encouraging healthy and active lifestyles, whist raising the confidence and aspirations of the youngsters."


The success of the programme was evident a few weeks ago when Tom Calladine, a former student and teacher, delivered two sessions to year seven and nine students in their PE lessons at the Garibaldi College, the Nottingham rugby number eight gave the students an insight into professional rugby, and the students clearly responded to him.


Mr Hall continued "Closer links between the Mansfield business community and Nottingham Rugby have also been forged with members of leading business organisation M2020 being invited along to two Championship rugby games this season courtesy of Hall-Fast''.


Nottingham Rugby Operations Director Chris Simon said Hall-Fast's continued support is a major coup for the club.  "I'm delighted that we will carry on working together and that this relationship, which has already had a significant impact in North Nottinghamshire, will continue to grow and impact on people in the area as Nottingham Rugby moves into a new era for the club," Mr Simon said. "This is another great example of what sport and business can achieve when working together. We are all excited about what the future holds as this partnership goes from strength-to-strength."


The rugby club was recently purchased by a new group that has subsequently become known as 'The Friends of Nottingham Rugby'. The club plays in the RFU Championship, the second tier of professional rugby in England, but has desires to get to the Premiership and take on teams like Leicester, Northampton and Saracens.


Simon added: "It's been a tough season for Nottingham, on and off the field, but the sale of the club presents a great foundation on which we can re-launch our strategy. We have a fantastic facility at Meadow Lane, a great training base and a committed and dedicated management team with high aspirations. Our partnership with Hall-Fast is a key part of our delivery plans over the next few seasons."
