Beastwear launching UK arm!


Beastwear launching UK arm!

Beastwear kicks off it's soft launch in the United Kingdom by supporting the Blaydon Rugby Football Club with a charity event.

Beastwear reaches out into the overseas market and opens it's charitable arms to the lads from the Blaydon Rugby Football Club. 

For all those interested, this is their story. Thanks for the write-up boys! 

We're glad to have been able to have helped with your fundraiser and look forward to our ongoing partnership with the Blaydon RFC in the coming years. 

"As 12 noon approached at Blaydon Rugby Football Club the excitement, anticipation, thrill and, in some cases, the nervousness started to build up.

Former army personnel from 47 Regiment from around the country, and even as far as Cyprus, turned up for their annual gathering of a charity rugby match.  Some of these guys play every year; for some this was their first game for 47 Masters.  This year the chosen charity was Help for Heroes. 

Off to the changing rooms they went, and on entry, they felt very professional – the room was presented as below with shirts being supplied from Beastwear and sponsored by Ropetech and JT Auto Services.  The lads were impressed!

As the whistle blew to start this game of the 47 Masters versus Blaydon Vets, the camaraderie on and off the pitch was evident.  The sun was shining, albeit a little bit cold on the sidelines, the support for all the lads was fantastic.

Players tackled, ran with the ball, rucked, mauled, tries were made and penalties converted, with exciting periods of play and well-executed moves.  Throughout the game, there was a lot of good play from all team members on both sides. 

There were several changes made at halftime in order that all the lads received game time in this great match. The comradeship and enthusiasm for this game was a pleasure to witness.

A great time was had by all and the final score was 38-28 to Blaydon Vets, with Russell Williamson from 47 Masters as Man of the Match.

After the final whistle blew, off to the changing rooms the guys went for a celebration with a few cans of lager, donated by the Stonecrows. 

They then came into the function room of Blaydon RFC, where the international games were being played.  In order to raise funds for Help for Heroes, we held first tries and several raffles, including an England rugby shirt (signed by Mark Wilson, Falcons player following his England debut), a Newcastle Falcons shirt (signed by the full squad) and numerous gifts for the main raffle, all being so generously donated.

The evening concluded with a disco presented by fabulous Fiffi La Mott and a buffet supplied by AMOW Catering and sponsored by Stratstone Land Rover Newcastle. 

A huge thank you to all who donated prizes, all the sponsors, staff at Blaydon RFC and of course all the lads from 47 Masters and Blaydon Vets who played and attended today.

And of course a massive thank you to everyone who supported the chosen charity – a tremendous £2250 was raised for Help for Heroes – absolutely fantastic!

A great day was had by all ….. Roll on next year!!"
