The Royal Bank of Scotland has some pretty nifty ideas.
Where most universities get funding to run their sports societies, independent communities have to scrimp and save to run sports projects. In some cases hard work and determination, usually by the members themselves, help to raise funds to create clubs and community initiatives. However, RugbyForce is making things easier by injecting much needed funds, online guidance and the tools to generate a community wide support effort.
RBS deals with the clubs in Scotland, while other banks help the other parts of the UK. The initiative was launched in 2009 and has helped over 1000 clubs so far.

Whether or not you took part in sports societies at university, no doubt you knew someone who was involved. University doesn’t last forever and when you move on it’s a nice thought that there can be new and exciting community clubs waiting for you to join.
