WPRFC is taking part in NatWest RugbyForce 2020, a nationwide programme developed in partnership with England Rugby which provides an opportunity for rugby clubs to open their doors to their local communities, team members and volunteers to help make improvements to their clubs ahead of the return to rugby, now that clubs have been greenlit by the Department of Digital, Culture, media and Sport (DCMS) to play Ready4Rugby, an adapted non-contact game and O2 Touch.

Postponed from June due to the pandemic, WPRFC will be welcoming volunteers down to the club on 5th and 6thSeptember and asking them to pitch in and roll up their sleeves to carry out much needed repairs and upgrades to the club’s facilities.

Brian and Nick will have a list of jobs that doing around the club, there is a huge variety. Some take as little as 30 mins. We will have all the equipment ready to go, just need your time. We will be holding a free BBQ at the event to make sure you don’t go hungry from your efforts.

This year, NatWest is offering more help to support the rugby community than ever before, providing an opportunity for a record number of clubs to get involved in the programme, with grants ranging from £500 to £3000 awarded to clubs to help renovate facilities, helping to ensure clubs remain sustainable for longer in these challenging times.

WPRFC will continue to follow Government Coronavirus guidelines and ensure all activities fall within guidelines present at the time of the event to ensure safety of all participants.

If you would like to get involved and support the club, please contact Brian on conkers4242@aol.com or Nick on ncornwell01@aol.com
