The day will be to raise awareness of two fantastic charities and teams will be encouraged to raise funds:
- Wooden Spoon is the children’s charity of rugby. With the help of you, the rugby family, they fund life-changing projects across the UK & Ireland that support vulnerable children and young people.
- Our own 1823 bursary fund which is in honour of Webb Ellis who was a bursary student. The bursary will offer means-tested places at Rugby School for boys or girls who show significant promise and aptitude for sport and a commitment to Rugby Football, with up to 100% of fees and essential extras available.
