Playing Their Part

Playing Their Part

The Glasgow Warriors family of sponsors and partners has been hard at work to help front-line workers and those most in-need in recent weeks - we've highlighted just a snapshot of some of the great initiatives that have been taking place over the last few weeks.

SP Energy Networks

The club’s official community partner SP Energy Networks has been keeping the lights on for 3.5 million customers across the country.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, their essential and critical work to maintain and manage their resilient electricity network to keep the power flowing will continue. Their operational engineers will still be visible out and about across the country; however, please be assured this is because the work being carried out is absolutely essential, and additional safety and social distancing measures are in place.

Now more than ever, millions of people are relying on their teams to power our homes, hospitals, care homes and supermarkets.

SP Energy Networks has also teamed up with Glasgow’s Golden Generation to support the communities we serve, to help keep the Glasgow’s elderly remain connected.

For those who might need a little extra help during this time, you can sign up to SP Energy Networks Priority Services Register. Customers can sign up here or alternatively, text PSR to 61999
