Welcome to TeamDav
Since 1968 Daventry RFC has been at the heart of the community in Daventry and surrounding villages. We have seen many players, supporters, friends and family through the club and many current players are second or even 3rd generation, many of them having played here since they were minis.
A place where competition and friendship go hand in hand. We have 3 adult teams, a veterans side (the mighty Vikings), a colts side and a great Sunday morning mini and junior setup; getting kids playing and training from 6-16 years old.
The club prides itself on inclusivity from all social backgrounds and has historically kept overheads, training & playing fees, and its operating cash at minimum levels.
From the management team to the servery, the club is run by a fantastic and dedicated group of volunteers. Our coaching setup are all RFU qualified, DBS checked and commit huge amount of personal effort to the club.
Additionally, DRFC and it's coaches provide afterschool clubs to the primary and secondary schools of Daventry District; and from our home of Stefen Hill we host inter-school competitions.
Why we need your help.
The impact of Covid-19, both socially and financially, is being felt throughout our country and society. Daventry RFC, a non-profit social business open to all in the area, is feeling this impact most acutely. The club prides itself on inclusivity from all social backgrounds and has historically kept overheads, training & playing fees, and its operating cash at minimum levels.
Covid-19 has meant an inability to collect fees, operate matchday bar and coffee hatch, and undertake our usual fundraising activity. Therefore we are asking those associated with the club and the wider local community to help out by donating what you can to ensure our survival.
We are looking to raise at least £10,000, with a stretch target of £15,000 to ensure we can keep delivering to our community. No matter what we achieve, every penny will be re-invested into the club, to survive the current crisis and build for a brighter future.
How will your generosity make a difference?
Your help funding Daventry RFC will:
- Ensure the club can pay costs in maintaining the club, clubhouse and pitches. Allowing 3x adult teams and 10 children's yeargroups to continue playing.
- Support the provision of equipment needed for the return of coaching U6-U18s in a Covid safe environment; in line with RFU guidelines.
- Secure the clubs survival, allowing delivery of our excellent and popular local after-school clubs.
Now over to you.
Any donation you can will be very gratefully received. It's an unprecedented time for all of us, but with your help we can ensure that Daventry RFC continues to provide a first rate training and playing environment for generations to come.
