Whilst the Ospreys’ international contingent are away on duty with the Wales squad during the Six Nations, the rest of the squad will be pitching in to help the community over the coming weeks.
In order to thank the local community for their continued support the Ospreys are asking people throughout the region if there are any odd jobs they can assist with during the duration of the tournament.
As part of their ‘Pitch In’ programme the players are being put forward to help with a range of odd jobs from painting and cleaning through to gardening and helping with weekly shopping.
They will be doing one project per week for the next seven weeks and are keen for members of the public to get in touch to let them know how they can help you and your community. The Ospreys are welcoming suggestions for suitable projects, and are asking members of the community to nominate individuals, clubs or organisations that will welcome the assistance.
Andrew Hore, CEO of Ospreys Rugby, said:
“Being part of the wider community means a great deal to us and is at the heart of everything we do.
“During the Six Nations Championship we want to ensure that we are doing everything we can to support the Ospreylian community, so we really want people to get in touch and tell us how we can help.
“As a community-minded organisation pitching in to help others here is our way of showing gratitude for the brilliant support that we get from the entire region.
“From now until late March we want to put some smiles on faces and make somebody’s day by lending a hand with the odd jobs that people have on their ‘to do’ list.”
