The Briars Rugby Club is a local sports club that provides the opportunity for children, teenagers, and adults in the community to participate in the sport of rugby. Through the sponsorship, Madrigal provided financial support to the club used to purchase new equipment, cover the costs of facilities, and support the development of the players.

We use our economic power to support local communities through charitable giving and philanthropy.
