“A Club for all ages, A Club for all people”
Project: Ballynahinch Rugby Football Club
Location: Ballynahinch, Co. Down
Loan Value: £25,000
Founded in 1954, Ballynahinch RFC has risen to become regarded as one of the leading Clubs in Northern Ireland boasting a membership of over 500 individuals drawn from all over County Down, Belfast and the Mournes region. The Club enjoys an excellent relationship with the local largely rural community with a Clubhouse which is regularly used by outside groups to hold various functions.
Community Finance Ireland were delighted to support this progressive club with a flexible, tailored loan to enable them to enhance their facilities and upgrade their grounds as they seek to further their mission to be at the social and sporting heart of their local community.
“Ballynahinch Rugby Club found Community Finance Ireland to be a superb organisation to deal with when we approached them to help us with a funding shortfall during the construction of our community walking trail. They made an effort to understand our club and its position within the local community and showed real empathy with our situation. The attention to detail was superb and the application was dealt with rapidly and efficiently. We would not hesitate to recommend them to other clubs and similar organisations. They have also shown themselves to be very responsible lenders with their help during the coronavirus outbreak.”
