With the help of the Cartwright Group sponsorship and the goodwill of a considerable team of volunteers, Knutsford Rugby Club has grown considerably since its inception in 2004. By bringing sport into our local community we have helped to engage an incredible youth section from 7 years and up, our ability to reach out to a new audience with the local schools has been recognized by the RFU with the Seal of Approval Awards and our work with the Community was rewarded by two RFU Presidents XV awards from the RFU. It is an amazing journey in such a short space of time.
The Cartwright Group sponsorship was invaluable in creating the momentum to go forward. The Group's help was a key factor to help the Junior and Senior Sections grow from such a modest beginning.

Earlier in 2013 a group of Cartwright Employees completed the Manchester to Blackpool cycle ride in aid of Sale United PFC a local power chair football team. Over £8000 was raised in the end to help maintain the specialist equipment that is required to keep the team active.
I’m really pleased that Cartwright’s chose to help our team out. Since it was formed in 2009 we’ve seen how much of a positive impact the team provides to the kids. This money will help the team continue on for the forthcoming season.
