This year we have restructured the Royal Bank RugbyForce grant awards to support clubs with an uplift in funding.
There are 10 x £3k Regeneration grants available for clubs who use Royal Bank RugbyForce to kick start their club’s climate action plan with projects such as:
- Reducing waste by repairing training materials, recycling or swapping playing kit
- Reducing emissions by reviewing your clubhouse energy efficiency options, EV carpooling to away matches or jumping on your bike to training
- Community action use your members to volunteer to work on a local garden, pick up litter and sort into recycling options from around your pitches, plant trees/wildflowers or even create a grown your own allotment onsite to help with post-match meals or a great option for team building is cleaning your local river way, canal or beach.
As in previous years, should your club not be picked for one of the larger Regeneration grants there is a smaller funding pot of £250 Regeneration grants to contribute towards your club.
Royal Bank RugbyForce day will be on the 12th of August this year, so why not link bringing your club community together to support Scottish Rugby during this important rugby year and kick start your climate action project.
