Wheelchair Rugby Receives Support from Charitable Trust

Allied Vehicles Charitable Trust is proud to provide a donation of £1,000 to Glasgow Rugby League, a volunteer-led community rugby league club with a strong commitment to inclusivity and development. This funding is earmarked specifically for the training and development of the club's Wheelchair Rugby League team, supporting their growth and enhancing their capabilities with new equipment and playing strips.

Glasgow Rugby League stands out for its comprehensive approach to the sport, supporting men’s 'Standard' and 'Wheelchair' clubs, with plans to launch 'Underage', and 'Women’s' teams—the latter two being unique initiatives in Scotland. With high operational costs for their facilities, this grant comes at a crucial time, enabling the club to not only maintain its operations but also to host events that promote the sport among young players and support charitable causes.

Kris Hendrie, Men's Head Coach at Glasgow Rugby League, expressed his gratitude, stating,

"We at Glasgow Rugby League are so grateful for the support from Allied Vehicles. These funds will greatly assist our current setup and significantly boost the wheelchair team in a critical development year. With this grant, we can purchase essential equipment and playing strips for the squad. We are very grateful once again for the support from the team at Allied Vehicles."

The contribution from the Allied Vehicles Charitable Trust underscores the Trust's dedication to fostering inclusivity and participation in society for those with disabilities. By supporting Glasgow Rugby League, the Trust aims to encourage more people, regardless of ability, to engage in and enjoy the camaraderie and benefits of sporting activities.

David Facenna, Corporate Culture Director at Allied Vehicles, highlighted the alignment of this initiative with the company's core values, saying,

"Supporting the Glasgow Rugby League’s wheelchair team, resonates deeply with us at Allied Vehicles."

“A huge part of our business is manufacturing wheelchair accessible vehicles which make a real difference to people’s lives, and this donation continues to show our commitment to promoting accessibility and inclusivity in all areas of life, including sports. We're proud to support the development of wheelchair rugby in Glasgow and look forward to seeing the positive impact this will have on the team and the community.”
