Scimitar are delighted to partner up with the Worcester Warriors Community Foundation, providing sportswear and leisurewear for its staff and volunteers.
With seven full-time staff and a group of volunteers working across the West Midlands community, the Foundation supports on average over 15,000 people each year through a whole range of programmes and initiatives.
While Worcester Warriors Rugby Club sadly went into administration in October, the Community Foundation, a separate arm of the club, reached out to local sustainable sportswear specialists Scimitar in search of new kit.
Scimitar have come to their aid by producing a range of sportswear and leisurewear including; technical t-shirts, polo shirts, ¼ zip training tops, gilets, sublimated hoodies, coaches’ jackets, padded jackets, base layers, sublimated shorts and skinny joggers.
The Warriors Community Foundation are the latest professional sports club foundation to team up with Scimitar, following the likes of rugby union’s Saracens, Bath Rugby, Sale Sharks, Ospreys and Dragons, as well as football’s Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Brighton & Hove Albion, Portsmouth and Millwall.
Warriors Community Foundation Development Co-ordinator Dan Hart said: “With the unfortunate situation at Warriors, we were left needing new kit for our Foundation staff and volunteers. We knew about Scimitar locally and decided to reach out to see if they could cater for our needs in a short space of time, and they have delivered high-quality kit which the team can’t wait to wear around the community at camps, schools and events.”
Scimitar Managing Director Sam Carter said: “We’re always looking to support the local community, having donated to local foodbanks and supported local hospices and charities in recent years. We know just how important the Warriors Community Foundation’s work is around the community and the lives they impact, so we’re thrilled to support a wonderful cause that helps change so many lives in a positive way.”
The Foundation run a whole host of programmes. In terms of rugby, the Foundation provide wheelchair rugby, blind rugby, inclusion rugby and walking rugby to engage a variety of participants, while its Project Rugby programme works with England Rugby to drive participation in the game from traditionally underrepresented groups. Its other programmes include Special Educational Needs School Sport, the Diabetes Rugby Academy, Mental Health Boxing, Black Asian and Minority Ethnic Sport, as well as Homeless Sport. They also run a Dementia Sports Cafe every Wednesday at Worcester RFC (Offerton Lane).
