Queensbury Rugby Juniors ARLFC Proud to Show off New Kit

15 May 2017

Leo Group have been working closely with Queensbury Rugby Juniors ARLFC.

Queensbury under 8's have been a team since they were in the tigers group (aged 4 -6). Twice a week they train and learn basic skills, discipline, respect and most importantly have lots of fun and make friends for life. Recently the team have had to deal with hand-me-down kits from the older aged groups.

Their new coach Matthew Flanagan contacted Leo Group to see if he could get some funding for the new kits. Mr Flanagan, a local resident of Queensbury community has played Rugby most of his life and has a real passion for it.  His son had recently joined Queensbury Rugby Juniors ARLFC as Mr Flanagan had previously played for Queensbury and he felt this was the best team for his son to join.  Within a few weeks Mr Flanagan was asked to help out and before he knew it he was on a level two coaching course. After meeting with Mr Flanagan and seeing his commitment for the team, Leo Group agreed to sponsor the team’s kit wear and playing kit.

Matthew Flanagan coach of Queensbury under 8’s said “Over the time we have played and returned to club houses after matches, we have been envious of other teams with their smart team wear that they changed into. With the Leo Group’s kind and generous sponsorship, we now have our very own hoodies, tracksuit bottoms and polo shirts to wear after games”.

The new kit will do more than just make the team look smart, it will give the young rugby players more confident and a sense of pride, Mr Flanagan continued “For the Leo Group to sponsor our new kit means so much to us as previously we didn’t have enough kits to go around. We are proud of our club and team and want to be proud of our kit too. For each of us to walk out on game day with our own kits and numbers makes us full of pride and encourages us to play to our very best ability.”

“I love coaching the children and seeing them develop week in week out and now moving forward we can promote the look of a well-established team and set up thanks to our very kind sponsors - The Leo Group”.


A spokesperson from Leo Group said “Leo Group strive to work with the local community, especially when it involves the younger upcoming talent, as you can see from the picture the boys all look very smart in their uniforms.”

Leo Group Supports Queensbury Community with the Tour De Yorkshire!

30 April 2017

On 30 April 2017, Leo Group contributed and assisted together with the Council, local schools and community groups to plan an event to celebrate Le Tour De Yorkshire passing through Queensbury village.
Leo Group sponsored a big screen so that the local community could watch the race before it approached Queensbury village. To make the event extra special Leo Group also agreed to provide four flower planters which were located either side of the Albert Memorial in the village and a donation to buy paint and 2,000 metres of bunting to decorate.

Managing Director Danny Sawrij said “We are happy to help assist with the local community especially with such a momentous event, we enjoyed working with Kathryn and would love to take part in future events the local village has planned”. 

The event kicked off around 10am on Sunday 30 April 2017, with stalls, an ice cream van, a BBQ, a bouncy castle, various mountain bike races, an outdoor Zumba class and performances from local bands.

Kathryn Halford the Development Manager at Queensbury Community Programme and organiser of the event said “The event was a huge success, with approximately 2,000 people attending the hub to watch the race before it arrived in Queensbury. There were positive comments made about how good the village looked with all the bunting, bikes, hanging baskets and the flower planters, there was a fantastic sense of community pride!!! On behalf of everybody concerned, I'd just like to say a huge thanks to Leo Group and everybody else that helped in any way.”

Keelham Primary School’s New Playground Development

7 February 2017

Leo Group are fast approaching phase two of the Keelham School playground development. Keelham Primary School is a local school close to Omega Proteins one of Leo Group’s sites in Bradford. The school and Leo Group have been working closely over the past 18 months to develop and revamp the playground, in order to give the children a better environment to play in. Back in February 2016 Leo Group helped complete the first phase of the project, resurfacing the existing concrete playground with artificial grass creating a new playing area for sporting actives such as football, tag rugby and various other sports. This new development has certainly proven beneficial to the school and has even enabled them to win a football competition!

The second phase will begin in April 2017, this phase involves improving the outdoor learning area where the children will have a water play area, sandpits, green house, basketball hoops, a bug hotel, interactive play panels and much more! More news to follow …
