Social & Fundraising
In the last three years, through donations, grants, sponsorship and goods and services in kind, together we have raised almost £700,000. This funded the new changing rooms project, upgrading the suppy of all utilities to the club (gas, electrics, water, drains) and creating new social spaces and a kitchen in the old changing rooms and clubhouse.
It's crucial that we continue to develop the club's facilities for our growing membership, our afiliated clubs and the wider community. Our next big ambition is to build an all-weather training surface on our site.
Donations, sponsorship and financial gifts to the club are always hugely appreciated. We're making amazing progress and we must because we have amazing amibitions.
The pitches continue to require extensive work during the summer months - every year we spend £thousands repairing our damaged playing and training areas. Our footfall grows, our playing areas do not.
Our membership, including Patrons, Life Members and all those that help at the club, are crucial to our success - as are the many companies and organisations that are involved with our Club, including Renishaw, Mitsubishi, Doosan, Sport England, Gloucestershire Environmental Trust, Gloucestershire Playing Fields Association, Gloucestershire County Council Active Togerther, Smiths, RFU, Gloucestershire Active Children. We continue our work to grow this number, as many local companies and organisations see our Club’s desire to be wholly involved in the local community. Please let us know of any businesses that would like to be associated with a great community sports club that ours most certainly is!
Our Summer Ball and Beer Festival are always great successes, with 450+ people enjoying the Ball. The Beer Festival includes live music, a Hog Roast & BBQ, lots of different beer to choose from and our Annual Patrons Reunion.
Patrons & Ex-Players: please spread the word that we really want to attract all those who enjoy rugby and want to be involved with a great club to come along on a Saturday or Sunday to watch 5’s to 55’s having lots of fun, whilst enjoying a drink from the bar!
