Materials donation is scrum-thing else in Musselburgh

MUSSELBURGH Rugby Football Club (RFC) has completed the build of a three-room storage unit following a donation of building materials from CALA Homes (East).

The unit will free up space in the recently completed gym within the club’s garage. A local contractor was hired by Musselburgh RFC to build the storage garage using the donated materials.

With equipment now relocated to the facility, this will enable the expansion of the current gym facility which will soon be available for use by the local community.

Neil Durham, Musselburgh RFC’s club manager, said, “After building our new community gym facility and refurbishing our changing rooms, MRFC had a chronic shortage of storage space. With CALA’s help we have been able to create a purpose-built garage and storage room that will serve the club well for years to come.

“In doing so we can get our club back to normal and finally open our amazing new facilities which will serve both our club and the wider community. Without CALA’s assistance and our shared community values, this could not have happened; we are very grateful for their help and support.”

Musselburgh RFC has been active in East Lothian for more than 100 years having celebrated its centenary in 2021.

CALA Homes (East) currently has five developments underway in East Lothian. Philip Hogg, sales and marketing director with the business, said, “Musselburgh RFC are an established part of the East Lothian community that have enabled generations of young players to get involved with the sport. We are glad that our donation can help the club continue to positively impact the local community for many years to come.

“Having a strong affiliation with Musselburgh have made this contribution all the more special. We place strong emphasis not only on delivering quality homes but adding social value to the communities in which we build in too.”
