Joining forces with other Bristol businesses they have helped complete changing rooms which were left unfinished. After going bankrupt in January, Southmead Rugby Club, located next to the Greenway Centre on Doncaster Road received funding from the Rugby Football Union to help it to continue. However, the funding problems left two of the four changing rooms and Kitchen facilities at the club incomplete.
Kellaway have provided timber, paint, plasterboard and sanitaryware to help with the renovation plus the Kellaway Bathrooms showroom have donated and installed a branded new kitchen. Operations & Commercial Director, Sean Morgan explains why they have supported the club; “we work on lots of community support projects and try to reach as many worthy causes around Bristol and the South West as possible. In the case of Southmead Rugby Club it is an excellent club and plays a key role in the youth community in Southmead. We are delighted to support the club and the great work they are doing to help the local community. We wish them all the best for the new season and hope the improved facilities benefit all of local community.”
Trevor Sealey, aged 50 from Filton, is club chairman. He said: “We are delighted with the efforts of everyone who has helped with the improvements in the facilities at the club. It has been a very difficult couple of years for the club however, with the help of the RFU and local business, we are able to say we have some excellent facilities and a bright future for all of the community to use. Kellaway Building Supplies have been very supportive with both materials and their time and expertise to help us achieve something that we have needed for quite a while.”
