In celebration of its multi-year title partnership with Premiership Rugby, the children were invited to become part of official match-day proceedings and its ‘Gallagher Game Day’ at Welford Road as the Leicester Tigers prepared to take on visitors Exeter Chiefs.
The young Leicester Tigers fans from friends and relatives of Gallagher colleagues and clients took on the honour of acting as mascots and flagbearers for the game, and enjoyed a special play-on-the-pitch training session led by community coaches from Gallagher Premiership Rugby.
The ‘Gallagher Game Day’ at Leicester Tigers is one of 12 events the insurance broker is hosting across the season and forms part of the company’s investment to strengthen its relationships with the community.
Gareth Parry-Jones, Head of Office at Gallagher’s Leicester branch, said: “The Gallagher Game Day hosted at Leicester Tigers was a fantastic event and a wonderful opportunity for the children to experience a once-in-a-lifetime treat, from training with their local heroes to watching the exciting game kick-off from the side of pitch.
“Not only are we eager to bring our rugby partnership to life, and ensure a whole new generation at grass roots level grows up to love and play the game, but as a community broker our partnership enables us to demonstrate our commitment to supporting local businesses and individuals who we help face the future with confidence by protecting what matters most to them.”
