Berkshire Brignads mixed ability rugby awarded grant

BERKSHIRE BRIGANDS RUGBY CLUB has been awarded with a grant of £1,000 from Cash 4 Clubs to invest in the sustainability of the club.

The rugby club has been granted the money by Cash 4 Clubs, who are celebrating their 12th annual campaign, in a scheme to provide clubs money to improve facilities, purchase new equipment and gain coaching qualifications.

Cash4Clubs was launched in 2008 and has so far supported clubs with over £515,000 in funding. The charitable scheme is open to all local sports clubs in the UK & Ireland.

Given the financial hardship many clubs have faced during the Covid-19 crisis, grants have been allocated to clubs that need help to ensure they can continue the important work they do to keep their community active, beyond the pandemic.

Following their successful application via the Cash 4 Clubs website, members of Reading RFC – Berkshire Brigands Rugby CIC will be spending the well-deserved cash on much needed Berkshire Brigands Team shirts.

Co-Founder Craig Hunter was delighted after receiving the news that their club was amongst the 2020 winners: “Reading RFC in conjunction with Berkshire RFU & IMAS (International Mixed Ability Sports) started Berkshire’s first Mixed Ability Ruby Team who are a community team welcoming players with learning disabilities, autism and other barriers, and those without, from 17 years and above. This grant will enable us to purchase a new team strip and first aid equipment.“
