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.

Estate agents’ sweet Easter fundraiser

Harrison Murray, Enderby branchAn Enderby estate agent has joined four other Leicestershire estate agency teams who are ‘chocs away’ with a tasty fundraiser for local homelessness project One Roof Leicester.

Harrison Murray Estate Agency (part of The Nottingham) in Enderby has joined the Leicester, Wigston, Syston and Groby offices of the company with raffling chocolate bouquets in-branch to raise cash for the charity.

It’s a sweet starter to a working relationship that, later in the year, will also see Harrison Murray staff visit a couple of One Roof’s premises to help with a gardening project.

Jennie Andrews, senior residential manager at Harrison Murray in Wigston and Syston, said:

“Harrison Murray has long had a reputation for getting involved in positive work in the community and when we heard about One Roof there was an obvious and natural fit – we are extremely proud to link up with them.

“We are getting things underway with the chocolate bouquet raffles, which will run between now and Easter, and we are sure local people will give very generously to such a good cause.

“However, long-term, we are looking for the link-up to truly blossom. Whilst the funds we raise over Easter will be very important to One Roof we want this to be an even more tangible relationship that sees us getting involved in helping them make the difference to homeless people that they do on an ongoing basis, including in the form of volunteering some of our time.”

One Roof manager Salma Ravat added:

“It is fabulous of Harrison Murray to step up and offer this support and we are really proud to be working with such a strong local brand that prides itself on its community work.

We are looking forward to the relationship going from strength to strength and it being a positive boost to our work in helping homeless people in Leicester.”
