Gloucester Rugby have teamed up with Lloyds TSB to help them celebrate the launch of their fantastic new premises in Eastgate Street.
Many will have noticed that the Lloyds TSB branch has recently been closed for some four weeks whilst undergoing major renovation work, showing its strong and continued commitment to the city and local community.
Recognising a shared vision of being pro-active in the community, Lloyds TSB approached Gloucester Rugby to put together a package to mark the official launch day on 10th December.
Although the bank will have been back open for business from the premises for several days, the focus is now firmly on launch day when several members of the Gloucester Rugby first team squad will be joining the staff to meet and greet customers old and new.
Hopefully you can join the players and staff during the late night opening festivities and, if you can, there will be a fantastic prize on offer for eight lucky people!
Yes, there are eight opportunities to win a pair of tickets for a VIP day out in a private box to see the LV= Cup clash when Gloucester take on local rivals Worcester at Kingsholm on 30th January.
Food and drink will be laid on and th ebest view in the house assured as you are hosted by Gloucester Rugby and staff from the Lloyds TSB branch.
In addition, there will be runners up prizes of a signed shirt and a luxury Christmas hamper.
Lloyds TSB also have a national competition running during this period details of which are available at the Eastgate Street branch.
Please do come along on 10th December to take a look at the new branch and meet the players. We look forward to seeing you there.
Speaking to the local media this week, Richard Hibbard expressed his excitement ahead of the West Country derby and that there is an extra spring in the step of the Cherry and Whites ahead of the tough challenge.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
Gloucester travel to Italy this weekend to take on Zebre in Round Four of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The Cherry and Whites defeated the Italian side 35-10 last Sunday, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys is looking for an improved performance in the return fixture.
On a tough evening at Kingsholm, Gloucester could escape neither a suffocating Bath defence, nor the whistle of referee Greg Garner as six penalties and a penalty try paved the way to a 39-16 win for the visitors.
Gloucester Rugby welcome Sione Kalamafoni, Greig Laidlaw and Tom Palmer back to the starting line up and feature David Halaifonua in a matchday squad for the first time, as they resume Aviva Premiership action against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm on Saturday (kick off 5:30pm).
