Longlevens Rugby invites friends and supporters to help improve our facilities and to bridge the shortfall created by the corona virus

by Christopher Yorke in Gloucester, England, United Kingdom

What is the Open to All Campaign?

We know we’re a club that has helped change people’s lives. Offering a place of belonging, without prejudice or judgement, and friendship. Our ethos is to encourage ‘participation’ regardless of experience, age, gender, background, or mental or physical ability. THIS IS YOUR CLUB. Therefore, we refuse to accept that coronavirus will impact upon our vision for the future of the club. 

Lets keep Longlevens Rugby 'Open to All'.

We need your support!

This Crowdfunding campaign is an SOS to the people of Longlevens, Gloucester, Gloucestershire and beyond. Our aim is to continue to improve the facilities off the pitch and give you somewhere to meet, socialise, eat, drink and make friends.  

We are so proud of the services we deliver. From our senior sides, junior teams, our mixed ability rugby side for those with mental or physical disability and our out reach program to children at special educational needs schools. 

We believe we can offer the best rugby grassroots rugby experience in the area for our diverse player base, supporters and local community. But to achieve our goals we need your support. 

In particular we would love to see you on our Legends Wall, where your face will line the changing rooms in an idea borrowed from Twickenham below. To feature select 'Buy A Pic' for £10 a square in the rewards section.

Why are we doing this?

The corona virus has put a significant dent in our finances. The rugby club was closed for 106 days over lock down preventing any trade from taking place. So in order to keep moving forward we need to recover the financial loss incurred over this period. 

But we want to do more... We want to offer the best grassroots rugby experience in the area, and to encourage more children and adults to participate in the sport we are so privileged to deliver.  

One we get through coronavirus imagine the experience if we went from where we are now (left) to something much better (like the right hand picture, illustration purposes only):

How will the funding benefit Longlevens?

We have been working on plans to significantly improve the facilities at Longlevens Rugby. These exciting plans include:

  • Major refurbishment of the clubhouse interior including a new room and floor to ceiling glass bi-fold doors securing more light into the venue and views of the playing pitch
  • Major landscaping, drainage, and security for an excellent playing surface throughout the year
  • A complete overhaul of the car park and drainage system for a safer and more attractive environment

Major works come with a major cost but if we hit target we will secure matched funding from Sport England to achieve our goals

We love our club, but we think it is vitally important that a refurbishment takes place so that we can be a more welcoming and hospitable environment for our growing membership, disabled players, and local community. Once we plug the gap in our finances due to coronavirus we must invest to ensure our long term financial sustainability of the rugby club.

Let the light in! We think a proper view of the pitches and fields would dramatically improve the clubhouse experience for all and make it much more attractive for all who visit.

Imagine how lovely it would be to have something like this (purely for illustration purposes):

We love our club and we are tremendously proud of it. But there is a lot of expensive and 'unseen' work that needs to take place too. The shallow rooted Poplar trees have wrecked the car park surface and underground drainage system which all needs to be dug out and replaced.

With your help we can survive and thrive!

Longlevens Rugby was proud to be shortlisted as a finalist in the Gallagher Rugby Club of the Season award in 2020. The club made it down to the final six clubs nationally, which gained the club exposure across the country.
