Cambridge Garage Volvo sponsors Rachael Burford rugby academy

Rachael Burford with Burford Academy participant Havant-based Volvo dealership, Cambridge Garage, has confirmed its support for  England and Harlequins rugby player, Rachael Burford, and her female rugby academy for the second year running.

As part of the deal Cambridge Garage will support the Burford Academy, and also provide Rachael with a V60, for travelling to Burford Academy camps across the south of England, as well as UK and international duties.

World Rugby Champion, Rachael Burford, commented, “The continued sponsorship from Cambridge Garage Volvo has been fantastic news for the Academy and will again provide invaluable support as we host more camps throughout the year. The Burford Academy offers opportunities for young female players to develop both their personal and rugby skills and ultimately we want to encourage them to have fun, be confident and to always try their best.” 

“Sponsorship is hugely important to me as it provides an opportunity for the Academy to become feasible for the long term as well as being able to offer scholarship funds for players who may not have had access to our camps without it. It’s a great feeling knowing that local businesses want to support me so I’m able to give back to the game that has given me so much during my professional rugby career.”

Victoria Stringer, managing director for Cambridge Garage, added, “We’re thrilled to continue our sponsorship with The Burford Academy for a second year. It’s been amazing to work with Rachael and her team to help provide a platform to develop and nurture the talents of future female rugby players. Racheal puts so much time and dedication into each camp, as we would do with our customers, to truly help the players grow in confidence by supporting the girls both on and off the pitch.”
