Rugby Receives Windfall From Green Family

The family behind the Hamilton Princess has donated $10,000 to the Bermuda Rugby Football Union.

The money from the Green family will go towards funding the BRFU’s youth tour to the eight annual Freeport Junior International Rugby Festival in May.

Andrew Green said: “We are delighted to be able to support Bermuda’s young rugby players.

“The BRFU’s Mini Rugby programme teaches children important life skills, including respect, honesty and teamwork and we are proud to be involved in the programme.”

Sean Field-Lament, president of the Bermuda Rugby Football Union, added: “We are grateful to the Green family for their generous donation.

“We are so pleased that these youth programmes are getting the support needed to maximise the wonderful opportunities to play rugby for Bermuda.

“Great memories, lifelong friendships and character building are the positive outcomes we aspire to.”

More than 400 young athletes from around the world will compete in the annual Freeport Junior International Rugby Festival in the Bahamas.

The BRFU touring party will include more than 50 young players from the island.

The players, aged nine to 14, will compete in the Under-ten, Under-12 and Under-14 age groups as part of their mini rugby programme.

The tour is an opportunity for young athletes to gain experience representing Bermuda and to engage with other local players from different programmes and schools.
