The Guernsey Rugby Academy are thrilled that Rihoy & Son have increased the value of their sponsorship of the Academy for a further three years.
Paul Sykes, Head of Sponsor Relations for the Academy, thanked Rihoy & Son’s Chairman Jeremy Rihoy and the firm for their continued support: “The Academy could not provide the opportunities it does without the generous support of our sponsors.
“The Guernsey Rugby Academy provides opportunities for around 350 children aged 5 – 18 to play rugby on Guernsey and in the UK, promoting the core values of rugby, which are teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline, and sportsmanship. I know these are values that resonate with Jeremy and his colleagues at Rihoy & Son.”
Rihoy & Son is one of Guernsey’s oldest building firms. Founded in 1924 by John William Rihoy, the firm now employs more than 200 skilled staff and is responsible for some of the island’s landmark builds. The company has a strong history of supporting youth in local sports, including football, hockey, golf, junior bowls… and rugby.
