Lismore Rugby are aiming to become serial winners with local votes needed to have a chance of adding to success when Edinburgh and Scotland wing Tim Visser turned up at the club’s Inch Park ground to coach – amongst others – Graeme Pardoe, John Grant and Alex Pearson (pictured).
The coaching session was won through Ginger Grouse, official spirit of Scottish rugby.
As a follow up enterprising Lismore are chasing a coveted spot in the annual Aviva Community Fund grand competition having been accepted into the final voting round based on their ability to deliver an array of programmes to more than 2700 students from Gilmerton, Inch Park and Liberton in seven primaries and two high schools.
One of the £25,000 grants from the Aviva Community Fund would help meet the needs of the club’s growth within the community – and the club need members of the community to vote for them by visiting www.community-fund.aviva.co.uk and registering to vote.
The prize will be judged between May 30, when voting closes, and an announcement on June 29.
