Torfaen Tigers Wheelchair Rugby League Team

Press coverage is always a great way help to raise awareness of charities and volunteer groups.

Torfaen Tigers Wheelchair Rugby League Team is in need of attracting new supporters and volunteers, so that they can continue as a competitive team. Wheelchair Rugby League is an inclusive sport that offers both disabled and non-disabled players the opportunity to compete both with and against each other on a level playing field. The costs of running a team are high, and sponsorship is needed to help support the team in funding lighter and specially-fitted wheelchairs, kit, training and away game costs.

We were approached to assist in raising awareness for the team and get the message out across local media channels. We were able to secure placement in the local press and promote the team to a broader audience as well as making readers aware of the need to gain sponsorship and also to recruit new players to the team.
