New stretch target

All additional funds raised will be invested in improving our proposed new facility. We want to create a well-equipped gymnasium and a first class multi-purpose function suite. Both of these new additions are much needed in this area and will help Birkenhead Park to better serve its members and the local community

Why are we doing this Fundraising Appeal?

Birkenhead Park Rugby Club has suffered extremely badly as a result of the Covid Pandemic. Over 90 pre-booked events (Birthday Parties, Christenings, Weddings, Sponsored Matches, Awards Dinners etc) have been cancelled and crucial income has been lost. Initially, our focus was solely on survival. However, the Club Committee were determined that with our 150th Anniversary on the horizon, we needed to do much more than just survive. We owed it to the generations of former players (including the 75 members who lost their lives during WWI and for whom our Upper Park ground is dedicated), all of our current players from minis through to seniors, plus the local community to deliver a strong and secure future that can be enjoyed for another 150 years!



What is needed?

It has become ever more obvious during the course of 2020 that for community-based clubs such as Birkenhead Park, a viable and sustainable future can only be guaranteed by a strong financial base supported by multiple income streams. Therefore, our redundant and dilapidated Squash Court Building was identified as a massively under-utilised asset which was in desperate need of refurbishment and redevelopment. 


What will the Fundraising Appeal deliver? 

Next year, we are celebrating 150 years since the formation of the club and we are looking at all possible ways to protect our future and to ensure that we remain a thriving part of the Claughton and Birkenhead community for many years to come. As explained above, the aim of our Fundraising Appeal is to redevelop the redundant and unused Squash Court Building into a high-quality, multi-function facility comprising of a gymnasium, lounge/function- room with disabled toilets and access which will be an excellent, much-needed addition to this part of the Wirral Peninsula.1607966207_mail_drop_sheet_-_colour.jpg
