Shaw Gibbs are pleased to announce the corporate sponsorship of the Oxford Quins Community Program. 

The program comprises of rugby focused sports activities which are run in state schools, the sessions are designed to not only engage students with rugby clubs, but also provide health and wellbeing tips and advice. 

This is being led by Premiership Legend, Tom Varndell, in a newly created role at Oxford Quins as Head of Community and, under the partnership between Oxford Brookes and Oxford Quins, as Head of Men’s Rugby at Oxford Brookes’ Sports Department. As Head of Community at Oxford Quins Tom will be responsible for Oxford Quin’s Schools Coaching program, overseeing a team of coaches delivering PE lessons and After School Activity clubs and holiday activity camps at Oxford Quins. 

Ben Prior, CEO & Chairman of Quins comments

 “The program currently works with 15 local Primary and Secondary schools and will expand further under Tom’s leadership. Having Shaw Gibbs as a sponsor of the program will assist in the reach of this initiative, allowing us to engage with more schools and young people. 

When we work with sponsors, we are always keen to partner with organisations such as Shaw Gibbs who have a clear passion for working with the community We are delighted to have them on board.”

Peter O’Connell, Managing Partner for Shaw Gibbs adds

 “Our involvement with this program was borne from a desire to give something back locally. Coming from a rugby background myself, I can see the benefits in kids working with sports clubs and coaches in order to understand the benefits of: team cohesion, self-regulation and physical health. 

Having Tom as the lead on this program is the real icing on the cake, his passion for Quins and the county of Oxfordshire will be of huge benefit to the club, the kids under tutelage and the Brookes students involved.”
