Dursley Rugby Football Club
In light of the continuing seriousness of the Covid-19 situation, and the uncertainty of how things will unfold and when, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our planned Ball and Festival weekend, due to take place in June 2021. This is the biggest event in our calendar and an important fundraiser for the Club, and more importantly is a chance for the club and community to come together, to celebrate and socialise.
We’ve made this decision because our suppliers need to be booked well in advance and we still don’t know if events will be safe to go ahead. So to proceed would put the Club at risk as well as those suppliers – in much the same way as we explained to you when we had to cancel last year.
But don’t despair! We have some other ideas in mind, that we can put together at short notice and which will hopefully generate as much fun and much needed income. The combination of the cancellations of 2020 and 2021 will mean we will have lost around £20k of fundraising income just from these weekends alone, and it’s vital that we do everything we can to keep our club running and in a good position to restart when this pandemic is over.
We’ve put together a short survey, including our ideas and we’d like your views on whether or not you’d support them. Take a look and if you’d like to get involved this year – we really would love your help. Take the survey here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/L8WNLLD
