BACKGROUND

The Richmond Heavies is the veteran’s side of Richmond Rugby Club in West London, one of the oldest clubs in the world and presently playing in the RFU Championship as the sole amateur club.

Several recent unexpected bereavements of players have led to the creation of a charitable foundation to help protect senior and junior players at the club, as well as being able to help those immediately impacted, by a serious illness or bereavement.

FOUNDATION AIMS

The Foundation has twin goals:

PREVENTION. Preventing future avoidable medical conditions  through enhanced health screening and education, made available for the whole Richmond Club.

SUPPORT. Assisting rugby families hit hard by sudden death or life-changing injury.

INITIAL FUNDARISING

We will kick off the Foundation with a fundraising Sporting Lunch in the West End on Friday October 12th
