For the second year running, Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital is proud to sponsor the under 16s Bournemouth Rugby Team.

The private healthcare provider supplied last season’s strip for the team of budding stars and has agreed to continue its support into the new 2012/2013 season.

After beginning the year on a high with a victory against North Dorset, the young Lions look set to continue their winning ways well into 2013.

David McNair, hospital director at Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital, said: “It is very important to us to encourage young people to be active and participate in high energy sports activities like rugby to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle.

“We were delighted to be able to extend our support to the under 16s team for a second year. The commitment and enthusiasm the team has shown over the last season for their sport is an inspiration to us all and we look forward to cheering them on to victory this season.”

Since it was founded in 1957, Nuffield Health continues to be the largest not-for-profit provider of healthcare in the UK. The organisation believes that preventative health is the future of healthcare and champions the importance of general fitness and wellbeing to ensure customers benefit from a complete healthcare service.
