London calling as Carbon team up with Capital club

Posted: 4th December 2018

EDINBURGH investment firm Carbon Financial has hooked up with one of the country’s most historic rugby clubs.

Hard on the heels of sponsoring the London Scottish “Legends’ Dinner” at the Hurlingham Club last year, the club has unveiled Carbon as a partner for 2019. London Scottish spokesman Carson Russell said: “It is brilliant to partner with Carbon Financial again this season.

“Last year’s Legends’ Dinner was a roaring success and we are looking to make that event even bigger and better this year.

“Carbon are a fast growing business with a presence in London. We are delighted they will also be sponsoring other events, which is exciting for London Scottish.”

The business enjoys close bonds with the rugby community, sponsoring Bill McLaren Foundation events, the successful Strathallan 1st XV and Perthshire RFC’s recent 150th anniversary dinner.

“Carbon is delighted to enter into an exciting club partnership with London Scottish and strengthen the bonds established last year when we sponsored the Legends’ Dinner,” said managing director Gordon Wilson.

“London Scottish is a name known and respected throughout world rugby. As a Scottish business with a growing presence in London we are ready to play our part in the ambitious strategy designed to develop a club steeped in tradition but eager to progress on all fronts.”

“We also look forward to forging a close working relationship with the London Scottish community.”
