Halifax RUFC is taking part in Nat West 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 the clubs have been green lit by the Department of Digital Culture , Media and Sport (DCMS) to play Ready 4 Rugby, an adapted non- contact game and O2 Touch.
Postponed from June due to the pandemic, the Club will be welcoming volunteers down to the Club ( Ovenden Park HX2 8SA ) on Saturday and Sunday – 5 and 6 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.
This year, Nat West 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.
Halifax RUFC will continue to follow Government Coronavirus guidelines and ensure that 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 Grayham P. Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org ) / 01422 202253. To stay up to date with NatWest’s rugby activity , follow @NatWest Rugby on Twitter .
