Old Boys XV
The Old Boys RFC was set up by David Bush and Jim Goodman circa 1985. With a fixture list consisting of usually only one fixture vs the current 1st XV as part of the annual Rugby Dinner celebrations, the Old Boys RFC functions mostly to support the club in its endeavours. A huge thank you must be said for Jim and Dave for their efforts in initiating this fund, which has continued to run over the last 30 years.
Membership to the Old Boys RFC is granted to those who pay an annual subscription of an amount of their choice via a standing order. Currently, membership (which is mostly made up of Old Boys from the late ‘80s) results in an annual payment that helps to cover the costs of travel/transport to games etc. of the current club. Although the sum given is incredible generous and a huge contribution on their parts, it is clear that most benefactors are some of the “Older Old Boys” (who have been religiously supporting the Club financially for 30 years now!).
To this end, we are appealing to some of the “younger” Old Boys to contribute to this account, in order to keep the club running. As David Bush summed it up perfectly, “there was a consensus from many of us that we would like to put something back into an institution that had given us so much pleasure during our time as students”. If you feel that you would like to do the same, then we would welcome your support. In there near future the Old Boys RFC is also looking to produce available to all its members who play via a standing order.
Many thanks to all of those who have kindly contributed this year, the funding goes along way within the club and doesn’t go unnoticed and the club are truly grateful. The funds have made substantial differences to the club finances and will provide a healthy balance to secure future on the field for the costs of pitch hire and also to provide teams with kit to improve standards.
If you are interested in donating annually to the club account, then we would ask that you set up an annual standing order mandate going into the Old Boys RFC account (the details are below). This can be done electronically via your own online banking system, or alternatively we have produced a standing order mandate of our own (please see next page) that you can then post to your bank if online banking isn’t your thing. If you could also email email@example.com letting us know the amount you are looking to donate and the date in which your annual standing order will be paid that would be much appreciated.
There isn’t a figure that we are asking for specifically, please feel free to be as generous as you’d like. Every donation that we receive will make a huge difference for the Club in years to come to ensure that it thrives.
