WORTHING RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB

To Members, Supporters and friends of Worthing RFC and our local Community,

Centenary Appeal Fund

On 10th September 2020, the Club will have been established for 100 years. A time to celebrate the Club’s achievements over many years and the many friendships established over the years, whilst members of our Club.

In approaching its Centenary, the Club, along with many other sporting and recreational Clubs and organisations, face unprecedented financial challenges, brought about by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Whilst the Club benefits from owning its own grounds and facilities, now over 40 years old at The Rugby Park, Roundstone Lane, Angmering, it also has the considerable costs that go with maintaining its 23.5 acre site, employing its staff and supporting its “Rugby for All” policy of over 20 teams from Under 5s, for girls and boys and adults, as well as its flag ship, Raiders 1st team, ranked joint 49th in the RFU’s National league structure.

The impact of Covid-19 and the lockdown enforced from 23 March, caused an immediate and damaging impact on the Club’s revenues. Whilst Government and RFU/Sport England support has assisted, they will not alleviate the full impact of almost 6 months of lost revenue before the start of our Centenary season, assuming we are able to resume in September. We therefore need your help to plug this gap and provide the necessary funds and capital to manage losses, sustained by the loss of revenue and need to maintain and improve the Rugby Park, in readiness for our return to rugby and our Centenary season and seeing all rugby and commercial activity, returning to previous levels.

Therefore, after careful consideration, the Club has established and launched its Centenary Appeal Fund. We are asking for, a one-off donation of whatever you can afford, although £100 (£1 for each year of the club’s history) will help significantly in achieving our target of £50,000.

If you are able, please make your donation through our Just Giving page here, or alternatively, payments can be made to our bank account:

Payee: Worthing RFC Limited

Sort Code 20-98-74

Account Number 60313483

We appreciate that these are difficult times for everyone and sport may not be at the top of your current priorities, but we ask that you consider your Club and its role within our local Community and its value and benefit, to help sustaining it for the future.

In anticipation, we thank all those, who are able to provide some form of donation and to each and every one, please stay healthy and safe as we find our way through these difficult times.
