Playing Their Part
Charity fundraising, keeping the power running and getting you to your vaccination appointments safely - check out how the Glasgow Warriors family of Sponsors and Partners have been Playing Their Part.
SP Energy Networks
The club’s Official Community Partner, SP Energy Networks has been keeping the power on for 3.5 million homes and businesses across Central and Southern Scotland, North Wales, Merseyside, Cheshire and North Shropshire, through the pandemic and beyond.
Futhermore, the recent winter weather saw SP Energy Networks provide expert guidance on how to prepare for stormy weather, while some of Scotland’s finest rugby players helped raise awareness of their free Priority Services Register which provides extra support for those who need it most when the power is out.
SP Energy Networks employees featured in their #SPENHero campaign have proven to be true heroes by supporting their local communities through volunteering and charity fundraising initiatives, while their apprentices have been helping them build a greener future and promote science and engineering as career options for women and girls.
Our free Priority Services Register provides extra support for people who need it most if the power goes out. But don't just take our word for it, here's @Scotlandteam players Fraser and Jamie to tell you more. 👇

Clyde Travel Management
Glasgow Warriors’ Official Travel Partners Clyde Travel Management have been shining a light on the efforts of seafarers as key workers during the pandemic.
The #ColleaguesUnite effort saw co-workers from across the Northern Marine Group, to which Clyde belong, collectively and virtually travel the 15,998km between their Houston and Singapore offices in a keep-fit challenge, raising over £1,500 for Mission to Seafarers, who support seafarers whilst at sea.
