Yate RFC and HMP Ashfield worked together to donate a large amount of items for the Christmas food parcels provide by the Trussell Trust from their collection point at The Candle, Station Road, Yate. Boxes were left over the last week at Yate RFCs home base at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex, in the main staff entrance at HMP Ashfield in Pucklechurch and at Yate RFC Player Bernie McMullen’s shop, Calendar Club, East Walk, Yate for items to be donated and as ever people were extremely generous.
HMP Ashfield Director Martin Booth and three of Yate RFCs Board Members, who also work at the prison, Chairman Stewart Stacey, Club Secretary Mark Summerville and Club Captain Neil Olive attended the collection point on Friday 29th November to hand over 2 large boxes and several other bags of items to help local people in the Yate and Sodbury area.
Thank you to all the players, family and Youth section parents who donated items to help this great cause. The club at the heart of the community.
