A rugby club in Brent got a £1,000 cash boost when they treated customers to a fun day in Neasden.

The Kilburn Cosmos junior team, who train in Gladstone Park in Anson Road, Cricklewood, attended the club’s fundraising day by packing customers’ shopping at the Tesco Extra store in Great Central Way.

An inflatable rugby game in the car park tested customer’s accuracy and speed. Customers that hit the target received rugby balls and the top scorer of the day received an official England rugby t-shirt.

They also enjoyed a range of pies and ales to celebrate six weeks of the Rugby World Cup in the UK.

Tesco made a £1,000 donation to the Kilburn Cosmos Junior and mini team by way of supporting the club.
