Doncaster Knights is crowdfunding

raised of £500 target by 86 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to A commemorative bench for DRFC Team Manager Paul Turton at Castle Park.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


DRFC Team Manager Paul Turton (Turts) sadly passed away on December 23rd after losing his battle with Covid.

Turts played as hooker for Pontefract RUFC and became a member of DRFC in the late 1980’s when he retired from playing. He then became a stalwart of the club, firstly as 1st XV touch judge and latterly as team and logistics manager up to the present day.

Turts was a fine example of giving his time voluntarily over 30 years to DRFC and was a much loved character at Castle Park.

To remember a man that gave so much to the Club, a commemorative bench will be placed at Castle Park in his memory. If you would like to contribute please donate via the page.

***Thank you for your generous support - all additional money will be donated to the CCU Team at DRI.***
