Story

Keeping the Lights on at Old Deer Park

As we all start the process of putting the Christmas lights on at home, spare a thought for the floodlights at ODP, which were first installed in 1970!

Floodlit pitch space is the lifeblood of amateur rugby clubs. Right from the 8 years olds doing extra training with the community team, to the old boys playing touch rugby, the lights are used for a few hours every day of the week during winter.

Its now time for some care and attention for the floodlights and we are raising a total of £36,000 to fund much needed maintenance, and also to fund the purchase of the clubs 67 debenture seats in the Principality Stadium. The target is made up of Floodlight maintenance costs o £8,000, and debenture purchase £28,000.

London Welsh Amateur purchasing the debentures from the professional club, which have been used for over 50 years by members of London Welsh, means that we can contribute in a small way to the funding of Elite rugby at London Welsh. The seats are being purchased for their original cost, and upon expiry (between 2028 and 2035) the equal value will be returned.

We are conscious that Christmas is an expensive time, and we will gratefully accept any donations, however large or small.

You support will provide a brighter future for all of our players from ages 6-60 - men, women, children, academy players and the touch rugby groups.

Thank you in advance
Nadolig Llawen
