Rugby Group Benevolent Fund have long supported the work undertaken at the Bradby Club, simply put; without their sustained and prolonged funding we would not have the diverse range of support and activities on offer. When times have been hard the Rugby Group have always been there to ensure Bradby has been able to continue; offering project funding, top up grants and COVID support. In 2020 RGBF committed to the largest 3 year funding the club has ever received which totalled a whopping £103,500 over the period. Ian Southcott, Rugby Group Benevolent Fund trustee and long-time supporter of the club dropped by this week to award the Club with this year’s instalment of £34,500, the second of the 3-year commitment.
This funding is the backbone of Bradby’s ASCENT Project contributing towards salaries and additional project costs to support young people intensely around a range of issues that includes; exclusion or risk of being excluded, exploitation, gangs and youth violence, drugs and alcohol, mental health, relationships and contraception. This work is vitally important in safeguarding young people and their futures and giving them the support they need to achieve to their full potential.
A huge thank you from everyone at the Bradby Club for Young People for Rugby Group Benevolent Fund’s continued support and funding. We couldn’t do what we do without you.
