Centrus Communities has announced a £15,000 donation to Go Underhill an ambitious community project to transform the sporting and community facilities in Underhill Park in Wales which is home to Mumbles Rangers Football Club, Mumbles Rugby Club and is also used by Swansea Cricket Club.
The project has been led by a charity, Mumbles Community Association, which was set up specifically to drive the delivery of the new facilities in Underhill Park and to ensure the long-term management and development of the park for future generations.

Having played for both Mumbles Rangers and Mumbles Rugby club from a young age, Underhill Park holds very special memories for me.Commenting on the partnership with Go Underhill, Centrus co-founder and CEO Phil Jenkins said
