FROME RFC CALLS UPON VOLUNTEERS TO HELP GET THE CLUB READY FOR RUGBY
Frome RFC 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, Frome RFC will be welcoming volunteers down to the club on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th of September and asking them to pitch in and roll up their sleeves to carry out much needed repairs and upgrades to the club’s facilities.
Frome RFC Chairman, Shane Lewis commented “As we move back to playing rugby, our grounds and facilities require attention. Having had little use there are a number of maintenance jobs and areas for further improvement that must be undertaken. I would be extremely grateful if you have a skill or are keen to help in some way that you find time to make yourself available during the NatWest Rugby Force weekend at Frome RFC, If you would like to get involved and support the club, please contact me at Chairman@fromerfc.org”.
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.
Frome RFC 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.
