Young players entering the game, players transitioning out of the game, Rugby For Heroes, the Rugby World Cup and all things Gloucester Rugby were on the menu for Thursday’s Cheltenham & Gloucester Rugby Business Network event.
The evening was once again held at the Mercedes-Benz showroom in Cheltenham and more than 80 businesses attended. Hendrix and the team at Mercedes-Benz looked after us well providing refreshments as well as a fantastic venue. In between networking and viewing some of the amazing cars on display there was a great line up of speakers who spoke on a variety of topics.
A BIG thank you to all those who attended the launch of the Bristol Rugby Business Network on Wednesday 6th November.
It was a great turn out with nearly 100 rugby players and business owners alike in attendance.
And of course, thank you to Mercedes- Benz Bristol too who hosted the event- those cars were very well positioned!
Spurred on by the great prizes-a signed rugby ball and 2 Bristol Rugby Matchday Packages -donated by the Bristol Rugby Community Foundation there was great support of the evenings raffle. The grand total raised on the night was £204.50 which has gone directly to the foundation which supports the key fundamentals of a successful rugby union.
Simon Torr, Premier Choice Group, was the lucky winner of one of the Bristol Rugby Matchday Package, which involved spending the day as the club mascot;
“I was very surprised as I don’t usually win things like this.
“There was one thing I had my eye on, but it wasn’t in the draw- The Mercedes SLS AMG in the corner of the showroom at Mercedes Benz of Bristol- another day maybe!”
