R World partners with Gillingham Anchorians Hockey Club and funds teacher.

We are so pleased to have formed a partnership with Gillingham Anchorians Hockey Club thanks to Harry McDonald, Head of Junior coaching who was a friend of Robbie’s, both at school and university. R World is funding a teacher from the club to do the First Aid for Mental Health Instructor training and plans are in place for this teacher to train up as many of Gillingham Anchorians’ club members as possible. We are particularly impressed with the fabulous tracksuits displaying our logo and are looking forward to working with the club in the future!
