Today Coventry Building Society is delighted to present the Bath Rugby Club with £4,222 raised as a result of supporters investing in the Bath Rugby Club affinity accounts.    

The savings accounts were first launched in 2004 by Stroud and Swindon Building Society, with the local rugby club benefiting from a donation equal to 1% of the average balance in the accounts. Following the merger with Coventry Building Society in 2010, the Coventry have been keen to continue this support.    

Phil Sawyer, Corporate Communications Manager at the Coventry said: “We are delighted to support Bath Rugby Club – today’s fantastic donation shows how much the community values their local club. The account has been very successful over the years and we look forward to making another impressive donation next year.”

We are really grateful for the continued support from savers; despite the difficult economic climate our supporters have been very generous. We are delighted and would like to thank everyone who has chosen to invest their savings in this account and support Bath Rugby Club.”
