MELROSE Mini Rugby Football Club has received a £600 financial boost from home phone and broadband provider TalkTalk.
The club will be sponsored by the national telecommunications company for the next 12 months and the funding will be used to purchase new training equipment for the Hornets.
Residents in Melrose, Newstead, Darnick and Gattonside will also benefit from a £50,000 investment by TalkTalk, which is expanding its Next Generation Network to provide residents with access to fast, reliable, better value and more secure broadband.
Built into the broadband network itself and unique to TalkTalk is the award-winning network-level security service HomeSafe, which gives customers control over the type of websites their household can access across every single device that connects to the internet in their home.
Sarah Calder, convener of Melrose Mini Rugby Football Club said: “We are very pleased that TalkTalk has chosen to support the Melrose Mini Hornets. The donation will be put towards training equipment such as new balls, cones, hurdles and practice ladders.”
