The deadline to register and be in with a chance of recieving an enhanced support package from RBS RugbyForce is fast approaching.
Clubs have until Friday 23 March to register for their chance to be eligible for the enhanced support package through RBS RugbyForce, a community volunteer programme that helps to improve club facilities.
All clubs that register receive guidance and advice on how to organise a community-wide makeover over 2 and 3 June 2012.
You have two days to register if you want your club to be considered for one of the enhanced support packs, which includes 4 x £1,250 and 1 x £5,000 grant to pay for any major renovation projects.
Last year Wortley RFC in Yorkshire was awarded with an enhanced support package worth £5,000. England international Tom Palmer and legend Jason Leonard paid the club a visit and proved extremely handy with a paint brush. Over 50 volunteers braved the elements and joined Jason and Tom in assisting a new roof and floor to be fitted in the changing rooms, renovating the toilets and sprucing up the club entrance.
Don’t miss out: you can register now and make sure your club is part of the RBS RugbyForce programme by visiting www.rbs.com/rugbyforce. Registration is open until Friday 23 March, with the RBS RugbyForce Weekend taking place over 2-3 June 2012. If you register after Friday 23 March your club can still take part in the RBS RugbyForce Weekend, however you won’t be eligible for a enhanced support package.
