HALIFAX RUFC calls upon volunteers to help get the club ready for RUGBY!

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  (grayhampsmith@hotmail.com )  / 01422 202253. To stay up to date with NatWest’s rugby activity , follow @NatWest Rugby on Twitter .

  1. Dan– many thanks for the info published about Rugby Force . It was a great success on both days [ 25 helpers – Saturday ; 15 Sunday ] There was splendid work done in improving the Club’s estate — from Club members and players i.e. mens , ladies and significantly the Mixed Ability squad on both days .
    The Club has been given a big lift and looks forward to resuming the playing of rugby when allowed .
    In the meantime come and try ” Walking rugby ” at Ovenden Park on Wednesday 16 September next at 6.30pm. All welcome and free . GPS
