The Nottingham launches rugby challenge with Leicester Tigers

Calling all would-be rugby stars!

A fun rugby challenge has been launched by the Nottingham Building Society (The Nottingham) and Leicester Tigers to find the person who can kick, catch and score like a pro.

Known as “Kick, Catch, Score”, the competition is open to all ages.

Anyone interested can go to The Nottingham’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/thenottingham and watch a short video of Leicester Tigers players showing what is involved in the challenge.

The idea is that entrants film themselves doing the challenge and then post the video on The Nottingham’s Facebook page by 3 September.

Details of the competition will be on The Nottingham’s website and Facebook page next week to inspire anyone who wants to try out their rugby skills.

Leicester Tigers will also promote the Kick, Catch, Score competition at their rugby camps over the summer and at the Tigers in the Park event in Leicester on Sunday 3 September.

The competition will be judged by managers from The Nottingham and Leicester Tigers.

The first prize is a rugby shirt signed by the first team players at Leicester Tigers. Second prize is four tickets to a home game and third prize is a dual branded rugby ball.

Winners will receive their prize on the pitch during half time at one of the Leicester Tigers matches.

Illuminate your dog to win a Christmas hamper!

dogsofblaby-competitionBlaby District Council is giving residents the chance to win a fantastic Christmas hamper for their pooch this festive season!

Between now and Thursday 15 December, anyone living in Blaby District or using a park within the area can take a picture of their illuminated dog out and about on their daily walk.

There are two easy ways to enter:

  1. Post the photo on the “Blaby District” Facebook page
  2. Tweet @BlabyDC with the photo or use the hashtag #DogsOfBlaby

The competition is part of an initiative to promote visible pets during the winter, including the prevention of dogs fouling out of sight of their owners and reduce the number of incidents of dogs with vehicles or other residents.

The hamper, worth £50, was donated by the local Pets at Home store on Grove Farm Triangle and includes dog toys, treats and a comfy wicker basket.

The lucky dog and winning owner will be drawn at random.

As part of the campaign the Council has given out 200 free light-up collars to dog owners, making it easier for them to spot their dog in the dark.

Michelle Ikin, Senior Animal Services Officer for Blaby District Council, said:

“There is a noticeable increase in dog fouling on our streets and parks during the winter.

This can be because owners can’t see their dog when it’s dark. But we also want to make sure our residents’ dogs are as safe as possible during the winter season.
“It’s important to remember that ‘if your dog stops prowling, it might be fouling!’”

Light-up collars are available online from as little as £2.

Win a fantastic Christmas hamper for your pooch this festive season!
