England Rugby Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme wins at 2020/2021 UK Sponsorship Awards

  • Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme (MMVRP) wins Grass Roots Sports Sponsorship Award at 2020/2021 UK Sponsorship Awards
  • MMVRP provides opportunity to reward and recognise hardworking rugby volunteers across the UK
  • For 25 years the annual UKSA Awards have celebrated excellence in sponsorship across a range of sectors and budgets

The Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme has won the Grass Roots Sports Sponsorship Award at the 2020/2021 UK Sponsorship Awards. The annual awards, now in their 25th year, rewards effectiveness and excellence across all sectors of the sponsorship, partnership and brand activation industries. The UKSA award acknowledges the programme’s recognition and support of the grassroots rugby community.

In partnership with England Rugby (the RFU), Mitsubishi Motors in the UK runs the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme to provide the rugby community and grassroots clubs the opportunity to reward and recognise the hardworking volunteers who are the lifeblood of the game.

Now in its fifth year, the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme offers rugby volunteers various exciting opportunities and experiences, with a key part of the programme being the annual Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer of the Year Awards. The awards give the rugby community the chance to nominate individuals they think deserve special recognition for their commitment, contribution, and dedication to the game. Out of the nominees, three individuals from across the country are crowned the Volunteer of the Year, and are gifted the use of a Mitsubishi Motors vehicle for a period of six months.

Another integral part of the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme is the Mitsubishi Motors Rugby Leadership Network, open to rugby club leaders over the age of 18. The Network provides resources and opportunities for club volunteers to work through challenges the community game faces. The Leadership Network creates a lasting impact upon the rugby community by helping volunteers and aspiring leaders understand what is required to run a successful and self-sufficient rugby club, and build a network of contacts from other clubs around the country.

Mitsubishi Motors in the UK Managing Director Rob Lindley commented: “We’re very grateful and humbled to see Mitsubishi Motors in the UK’s longstanding and proud commitment to rugby community, through its partnership with England Rugby, acknowledged in this way. We hope it inspires other companies to get more involved in sports and activities at a grassroots level and give more unsung heroes the credit they deserve for the tireless and selfless work they do.“

Mitsubishi Motors is the Official Car Partner of England Rugby and Official Partner of Scottish Rugby.
