Butterfield Bank presents cheque towards Bermuda Rugby's Youth Programme
The Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Limited made a donation of $2,210 to The Bermuda Rugby Football Union. The funds were raised during the World Rugby Classic through a raffle for an Official World Rugby Classic Match Ball signed by Classic Lion Players and a silent auction of an Official Classic Lion Rugby Jersey also signed by Classic Lion Players.
Funds were presented to Patrick Calow, Rugby Youth Development Officer, who oversees all youth rugby on the island, including the Sunday Rugby Programme, which was developed to give Bermuda’s youth aged six to 16 an opportunity to practice rugby with other young people from different schools.
Mr. Calow is also the head coach of Beyond Rugby Bermuda, a partnership between the Family Centre and the Bermuda Rugby Football Union. It is a rugby-based youth development programme that uses rugby to help atrisk kids graduate from Middle and High School and help them stay out of gangs.
