We are raising money to replace equipment stolen from our Club Gym during the Covid Lockdown.

We're still collecting donations

On the 30th July 2020 we'd raised £2,870 with 94 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Wallingford Rugby Club is a local community club, with 500 members aged from U6s through to retirement.  

Unfortunately our club gym was broken into during the Covid 19 lockdown.  We have lost a lot of items and just about all of our weight training equipment.

At a time when the club faces a financial uncertain future, we find ourselves in the position of needing to replace expensive equipment.  Despite being in a secure place, the thieves used bolt cutters to remove the locks, and wheel barrows to remove the equipment off the site.

Our equipment was available to members to use, so with the relaxing of the rules was an opportunity for member without their own equipment to potentially start training again.  Unfortunately now this is not an option.

We are raising money to both replace our equipment and increasing the security around it.

We are a club that along that coaches rugby for 350 children.  This is along with our senior members who also help in the society, in the year have helped raise and collect money for local charities.

Please help us in replacing our stolen equipment.
