Bolton School Sixth Form Boys

Warburtons and Silk Group Sponsor Rugby Boys

Bolton School's first and second rugby teams are all set for their forthcoming tour to Portugal. 

An Iberian Wine Tasting evening held in the School's Arts & Conference Centre has boosted funds for the trip.  A selection of Portuguese and Spanish wines were on offer, courtesy of Bolton off-licence T Wright, and, complementing the wine, was delicious food provided by Zest Fine Food.

The boys will make the trip in the Easter holidays and have been supported by local businesses Silk Group who have sponsored the team polo shirts, and by Warburtons who have sponsored the rugby shirts for the tour.

The boys will be based just outside Lisbon and will play four games on the tour.  They will also visit Benefica's football ground and the city of Lisbon.  The tour is organised by Sport and Corporate Group Travel.
