Amazing things do happen. Seeing London Irish promoting children's health, sponsored by Greggs, is clearly one.

Diet is the main cause of childhood obesity and the more attention that is drawn to that fact and the importance of health y eating the better. Greggs sponsoring a programme trying to promote the importance of physical activity in tackling childhood obesity is a classic diversion tactic.

On the one hand a good programme for LI to be involved in but you'd think that there were more appropriate partners than Greggs. It would seem to be just PR for a company like that, wouldn't it?

Having said that anything that "will offer thousands of children the opportunity to learn more about making healthier food choices and get active through playing tag rugby" has got to be a good thing.

Greggs actually do a lot for local communities, it's not matches sausage rolls. They help a number of schools in the country run breakfast clubs, ensuring that children get a good start to the day.

I am surprised that you haven't complained about the Paddy's whiskey sponsorship instead!
