#ClubIsCommunity: Leinster Clubs Helping their Local Community
March 26, 2020 / 5:02 pm / Lisa Doyle
At a difficult and stressful time in society, particularly for the most vulnerable amongst us, our clubs around Leinster are doing their part to help their local communities by offering support to those in need.
Of course, help comes in many forms. In need of a chat? In need of your groceries done or collected? Or your trip to the pharmacy sorted?
Please don’t hesitate to contact any of the clubs below who will be more than happy to help and do their part.
If your club is not on the list below, we are asking all our clubs to use the hashtag #ClubIsCommunity on their social media platforms, so that we can help spread the word and add them to our list below.
For now, click on your club below, to see how they are supporting their local communities and how to make contact if you are in need of support during the Covid-19 pandemic.
As always Leinster Rugby advises all our players, referees, coaches and volunteers to follow the HSE.ie for the most up to date guidelines, to enforce social distancing and practice hand hygiene at all times.
