To raise monies in support of proactively repairing the roof and also giving the outside of the clubhouse a facelift.

by Harwich & Dovercourt Rugby Club in Harwich, Essex, United Kingdom

The club has recently signed its new long term lease on the clubhouse for the next 20 years. With it being nearly 30 years since we moved in we have had some drone footage taken of the building and it shows that soon the roof will need to be repaired or replaced and if we act quickly we can save ourselves from that extreme cost and upheaval of replacing the roof by being proactive and carrying out remedial repairs and coating the roof with a guaranteed coating that could last another 25 years.

Whilst we have the scaffold in place we will repair the gutters, repair or replace the cladding on the gable ends, repair or replace the shutters and generally give the club house a face lift with new signage and upgraded floodlighting etc.



Outside we are extending the patio to make it a more useable space that will also be fenced in.


We hope to have all of this work carried out by the end of spring of 2022.

We estimate the costs to be in the region of £30,000 but have been advised that there maybe match funding available from various sources so our initial target is £8,000, Sport England may provide additional funding should we reach this target with the possibility that further funding will follow from other sources.

To ensure these works can proceed quickly we are looking into a loan from the RFU and we would then use this crowdfunding to repay the loan within the 2 year payment holiday being offered. 

Please support us in any way you can and thankyou for your donation.
