Giving Something Back to Our Community
As a business, we are proud to provide sponsorship and support to a number of great clubs, charities and organisations. We have a culture at Haggards which embraces a solid work/life balance and we encourage all staff to be involved with something other than work – maybe a sport or charitable group.
Here you can read a little more about each of our ongoing corporate sponsorships.
Barnes Rugby Football Club (BRFC)
As a keen rugby fan and player from a young age, Tim Haggard has always had an interest in rugby. Tim played for Barnes Rugby Club for many years, taking up his position in the second row, and when he stopped playing, swapped his boots for the books, becoming the club’s treasurer.
When the opportunity arose for Haggards Crowther to become a Platinum sponsor of the club, Tim and Andrew gladly agreed as they knew how the sponsorship would help develop grass roots sport, support young people and also help overseas groups, affiliated to BRFC.
Today, the players in the minis, juniors and first XV at Barnes proudly carry the Haggards Crowther logo on their shirts, both home and away, and associated outreach projects have seen BRFC engaging with young people as far as field as Africa.
The London Volleyball Association
Andrew Haggard has been involved in the London Volleyball scene as a player and administrator for over thirty years. As a result of his involvement, Tim and Andrew were pleased to agree a new sponsorship deal with the London Volleyball Association in November 2018 which will see the London Volleyball League referred to as The Haggards Crowther London Volleyball League.
The Association is the governing body of volleyball in London and runs the London Volleyball Leagues for men and women, supports junior squads representing London in national competitions and helps with referees and coaches. The league currently consists of nearly 90 teams in 11 divisions, with over 1300 registered players.
Like Haggards Crowther, the League has a wide presence across London and so it provides an excellent synergy with our own business. Sponsoring the league will help develop volleyball for all age groups and genders, in particular in schools.
