Wallasey Rugby Club is raising vital funds that will support us to recover from the impact of Covid and get the club thriving again.

This week we have had some unexpected great news - the RFU (Rugby Football Union) have given us a grant of 20k!

For this reason we now no longer require our original target of 35k and so are now able to reduce our project target to 15k. Crowdfunder UK have agreed that this is ok and you will see the target reduced on our project page from next week. 

We wish to be completely up front and honest with all supporters who have donated their hard earned money to us. And so with this in mind we have messaged everyone in our crowd offering full or partial refunds in light of this new development.

Of course we hope all our supporters continue to support us.  If you do decide that you would like some or all of your donation refunded you can do this yourself by logging into the Crowdfunder UK site or just send us a message and we can do it for you.

We would like to thank you all again for supporting the club - the future is now looking much brighter


Club President David Bott was interviewed on Radio Merseyside on Friday, speaking about the Crowdfunder project and the future of the club. Radio Merseyside will be sending us a link so that everyone can "listen again" - we will share this with you next week when we have it. 


We have decided to combine 2 of the rewards we initially offered into 1 - our Christmas Party.. which will be at the club on Saturday 4th December. Comedian Crissy Rock will be performing, along with Liverpool band The Sound as well as other local acts and DJ's to be announced in the months ahead. For £20 you can get your ticket as a reward through the Crowdfunder page. There are 150 tickets available for the event and the reward is now live on the site. 


The Crowdfunder comes to an end on 7th May - during the following week we will email out confirmation of all of the rewards - tickets for events, meals, etc which will be in the form of email codes. 


So we are into the final 2 weeks of our project now, with just over £4000 left to raise - so get your tickets for the Christmas Party and continue spreading the word. We are nearly there! Thanks again for all of your support - here's to good times ahead. 

Thank you
