WHILE Bredon Star Rugby Football Club has been busy raising funds to build their new clubhouse, they have still found time to raise money for the community.

As part of their successful fund-raising campaign, the club published a calendar featuring some of it’s players and sold them locally.

They donated half of the profits to the Midlands Air Ambulance and recently visited the operational centre at Strensham to hand over a cheque for more than £700.

Club President Kevin Falvey said: "We are delighted that we have been able to support the Midlands Air Ambulance.

"They do great job for the area and as a rugby club we have had reason to call on their services. Bredon Star is going from strength to strength and part of our ethos is to be an active member of our community."

Bredon Star has just finished a very successful playing season when the first fifteen gained promotion to the Gloucester One League and won the North Midlands Vase knockout competition.

And work has now commenced on the construction phase of the new clubhouse to get it up and running for the new season.

The club has a very active junior section with more than 170 youngsters between the ages of six and 16 and as part of the RFU’s ‘Fit for Fifteen’ campaign are seeking to encourage more players of all ages to join.
