Charter Savings Bank are proud sponsors of Coventry Rugby’s Project:500 initiative

Charter Savings Bank has proudly sponsored Project:500 for the last two years, one of the many initiatives run by Coventry Rugby Club which concentrates on supporting youngsters in the community and wider Midlands area.

The scheme launched in 2019 and we’ve had the privilege of being involved from the very beginning and we’ve marvelled at how much it’s grown and evolved, especially during the uncertainty of the lockdown periods.

The initiative’s latest three-day multi-sports camp at Butts Park Arena took place during the October half-term, designed to give disadvantaged children and young people activities to keep them fit and healthy over the school holidays, plus the nutrition from breakfast and hot lunches that they may not have had access to otherwise.

The children attending the camp were welcomed in the morning for breakfast where they chose from a wide assortment of cereals and fruits. The day was then split into a variety of different sports games including cricket, basketball, rugby and football – just to name a few. The sports allowed the children to learn new skills, socialise with different children and keep active during the half-term. After a morning full of activities, the camp then paused for a hot lunch so that the children could recharge their energy levels for the afternoon session.

Once the three days came to an end, all of the children were given a Charter Savings Bank goody bag plus a week’s worth of food which would help see them and their families through the rest of the half-term.
