Premiership Rugby’s Community Team bags top international award

Premiership Rugby is proud to have been awarded an International CSR Excellence Award as its Play and BreakThru community work received global acclaim.

Lydia Good, BreakThru Development Manager and Sophie Hartley, Delivery Manager for Premiership Rugby collected the gold medal award at a ceremony in London after Premiership Rugby’s community initiatives won a top award against more than 200 other nominations in the International CSR Excellence Awards 2015.
 
"It’s fantastic to be recognised amongst some of the leading Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) brands in the world," said Lydia Good, BreakThru Development Manager.
 
"Premiership Rugby is the only top flight sports league where a club is required to run a range of community programmes in order to be part of the league and we are proud that 90 national and local community programmes are run centrally and through our member clubs.
 
"Our 150 community development staff and over 500 volunteers run over 180,000 hours of community programming each year. The programmes run under the Play initiative supporting the growth of the game by providing opportunities to participate, develop and excel in rugby union.  The BreakThru programmes place rugby union and Premiership Rugby at the forefront of sports-based social change making a difference to 1,000s of people by promoting education and training, inclusion and healthy lifestyles in the most deprived communities.

"Premiership Rugby seems to be setting new standards in CSR for sporting organisations,” said Roger Wolens, National Organiser, International CSR Excellence Awards.

"They’ve achieved their success in the face of competition of a very high standard. They can take further satisfaction from the fact that they are the only sporting organisation to win an International CSR Excellence Award this year."
