Highland Rugby Club (HRC) has continued its centenary events by taking part in good deeds for the community.

A highlight of this month’s activities was members of its junior ranks helping out the Highlands Support Refugees group which was packing and sorting goods to be sent refugees in Europe and the Middle East.

At the Black Isle Showground, Struan and Fin from the under-15s team, Ruairidh from the under-13s team, Jo, team manager of the under-15s team, and Brad, a parent-helper, helped make up boxes, unloaded vans, sorted through donations and carried boxes.

Struan said: “It was really rewarding to join other volunteers and do our bit to help refugees. Doing it with Highland RFC on its 100th anniversary year made it even more special. I hope the donations help lots of people.”

Each month in 2022 a different act of kindness will take place to celebrate 100 years of the club.

Roy Dinnes, trustee at Highland RFC, said: “We’re really excited about the initiatives and events we have planned. We have something for everyone, whether you’re a club member or not and we can’t wait to celebrate with everyone.”
