Pontypool RFC launch 'Name a Puppy' programme

Thursday 10th October 2013
 

Pontypool RFC is pleased to announce the launch of its ‘Name a Puppy’ programme in association with Guide Dogs Cymru – Pontypool RFC’s ‘Official Charity’ for the 2013/2014 season.

The objective of the ‘Name a Puppy’ programme is simple – to raise £5,000 before the conclusion of this season to enable the breeding and puppy walking of a guide dog puppy.

The guide dog service transforms the lives of around 4,500 blind and partially sighted people in the UK every year, but it receives no government funding.

If £5,000 can be raised, a competition will be launched that will offer Pontypool RFC supporters the chance to choose the name of the guide dog puppy. A dedicated portion of the official Pontypool RFC website will also feature a variety of updates and photos of the guide dog puppy to highlight the difference contributions are making to the community.

This is a fantastic opportunity for Pontypool RFC to support the local community and the club is kindly asking for your support.

Whether you are a Pontypool RFC supporter or are simply interested in contributing to the ‘Name a Puppy’ initiative, anybody can fundraise for this great cause. Further details on how to donate will be announced shortly.

And by sharing your fundraising efforts with us via our official Twitter or Facebook pages, you will receive a free match day programme for a 2014/2015 fixture of your choosing!

Pontypool RFC and Guide Dogs Cymru thank you for your support, and for helping us reach our £5,000 target.

To assist with the launch of this initiative, Guide Dogs Cymru will be present at Pontypool RFC’s home fixture against Ebbw Vale RFC this weekend, where they will be accepting donations that will go towards reaching the £5,000 target.
