Wales Rugby League
JES Group Ltd have once again demonstrated their outstanding community credentials.
In supporting last Saturday's Rugby League International match at Ynys Park, Port Talbot with time, effort and financial assistance, JES ensured that Port Talbot has become a more connected community.
Helping to bring together Wales Rugby League; A2B Active Sport CIC (A2B CIC), the Aberavon Fighting Irish RLFC, Trefelin BGC, St.Joseph's School & 6th Form Centre, the Port Talbot Panthers, Blanco's Hotel, Jord's Kitchen and the Bulldogs BCA, the JES Group ensured that the first ever PDRL Mixed Ability rugby league match was staged in Wales and that Ynys Park's debut as an international venue for Rugby League was an outstanding success.
Dubbed the 'Autumn League' project, the idea was first introduced by Port Talbot based not-for-profit A2B Active Sport CIC and part financed by NPTCBC's HCTE Fund and UK Shared Prosperity money.
A spokesperson for A2B CIC said, 'JES Group Ltd has once again flown to the assistance of community sport. Funding from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund as administered by NPTCBC through its HCTE funding pot allowed a great sporting event to take place in Port Talbot last weekend, but JES supplied the 'glue' to make it happen, via sponsorship, labour and logistics. Ultimately, a company's community credentials are significantly bolstered when they consistently demonstrate their commitment to local amateur sport and good causes, creating a positive impact that extends far beyond their core operations'.
