Gloucester Rugby Club has teamed up with Green Lane Land Rover to host a series of half term rugby camps in February.
The camps, aimed at 7-14 year old boys and girls, take place on 14-15 February at Oxstalls School, 16 February at the Prince of Wales Stadium, Cheltenham, and 17-18 February at Cirencester Rugby Club's Whiteway ground.
The rugby events cost £33 per person for each two-day camp, and £17 for the one-day camp in Cheltenham.
Members of the Junior Gloucester Crew, and junior members of Cheltenham Rugby Club and Cirencester Rugby Club will receive a discount on these prices.
The partnership with Green Lane Land Rover builds on Land Rover UK's sponsorship of England and Premier Rugby.
Through the sponsorship of the Gloucester Rugby Club February camps, Green Lane Land Rover is extending its support of elite rugby to encompass the grassroots of the sport.
The half term rugby camps have been supported through money that was raised from the Land Rover Community Incentive Scheme, where any vehicles sold to Gloucester Rugby Club personnel or supporters through Green Lane, resulted in a contribution to Gloucester's Community Development Department.
Gloucester Rugby Club and Land Rover are continuing with this incentive scheme again this season. To participate, all you need to do is make Green Lane Land Rover aware that you are a Gloucester supporter so that they can arrange the appropriate donations.
As part of their sponsorship of the half term camps, Green Lane Land Rover has also donated a prize of four Grandstand seats to one of Gloucester's Zurich Premiership fixtures at Kingsholm this season to be won by one camp participant, and will have an on-ground presence at the camps along with two new Land Rover Discovery vehicles to help with the transportation of players, kit and equipment.
A number of Gloucester first team players will be making special guest appearances at the camps to offer coaching advice and answer questions about being a professional sportsman.
