Volunteers at work
SATURDAY 16TH AUGUST
Although the Raiders were training instead of playing a pre-season game it was good to see them put into practice some of the techniques the "Coaching the coaches" had been taught during the morning.
Those Volunteers who were available and turned up for the "Thank you" enjoyed the afternoon session. Many thanks to Billie for the vast quantities of food available, somehow it all disappeared. There will be another "Volunteers Thank you" at the end of August, the date will be finalised this week.
SUNDAY 17TH AUGUST
Many, many thanks to those who helped out on Sunday. All ages from U6 to the dads (plus the Chairman and General Manager) who managed to use a few gadgets. There was a lot of litter picking and the outside tables were stripped and painted, please see the attached pictures.
There will be another "Work Party Day" at the end of August, the date will be finalised this week.
MAIN SPONSOR BOWERS & WILKINS HAVE OPEN DAY

B&W Group and Worthing Rugby Club
Bowers and Wilkins look to support the local community including charities and clubs with whom their employees are connected. They are therefore pleased to continue their support of the Raiders for the 2014-2015 season that kicks off in September.
During the summer Bowers and Wilkins opened up their factory in Dale Road for family and friends (including the club) to see first-hand how the Company manufactures its world class speakers, to experience some of the Bowers and Wilkins sound systems and enjoy some hospitality. Geoff Edwards, Executive Vice President Operations seen here with (left to right), Mike Perring, Robin White Ė President of Worthing Rugby Club and Tony McGhie, in front of the team shirt.
What turned out to be a very warm day saw in excess of 700 people tour the factory before heading outside for sustenance whilst being entertained by the Shoreham Allstars. Children were able to take advantage of various inflatables and the big kids (and those still thinking they are big kids) could enjoy a session on the Segway course.
In addition to Bowers and Wilkins support of The Raiders in their challenge to return to National One at the end of the coming season, the Company is pleased to also support the clubs highly successful ladies team, and the recently promoted menís Senior 1s. Bowers and Wilkins wishes all the teams luck in their challenge.
