As The New Saints Football Clubs Main sponsors, we recently teamed up with the graphics department at The Grange School in Hartford to offer students the chance of winning corporate hospitality tickets to a TNSFC game. The competition was open to students aged 11 -13 to produce an infographic to show all aspects of the RUKGROUP business. We also gave the winner the chance to have their infographic used as our advertisement in the match day programme in the match against Carmarthen Town on Saturday 25th November 2017.
All of the entries received were fantastic but the winning entry was from Rory Innes, aged 13. In second place was Millie Wilding and third place was Nick Francis.

All three students and their guests joined RUKGROUPS Jayne Robb on Saturday, along with teachers from the Grange School in Hartford, Mrs Farrall and Mrs Beardsall. The students were initially met by Jayne and shown to their seats within the corporate hospitality stand at Park Hall, home to TNSFC. There they enjoyed free drinks, a two course meal and complimentary programmes, where of course Rorys design was found on page 32 (shown above). Our commercial director, Simon Marsden, even made an appearance to show his appreciation to the competition winners.
The students had a very special mention at half time over the tannoy and they each went onto The New Saints very own radio station to explain to Stewart Bloor about how they decided on their design for the competition. Millie even helped Stuart out with some of the commentary! A good day was had by all and was finished off by fireworks at 6pm courtesy of The Venue at Park Hall.
