The Friends help people to play sport. We believe that sport for all is good. So, we are here:
- To provide help to people to play sport
- To provide help to organisations that allow people to play sport
You never know when you might need somebody to lean on…
1. Who we are...
The Friends of Hove Rugby started off as a group of people from Hove Rugby Club who just wanted to help those suffering from hardship at the Club and we have been doing that since 2011. In 2018, we converted the Friends into a Charity and intend to carry on the good work and expand a little. We exist to help bring sport and particularly rugby to all in our area.
2. Where we operate...
Originally, the Friends concentrated all their resources within Hove, but we have widened our wings and now include the surrounding areas as well. We have made grants to members of both Brighton and Shoreham Clubs in addition to Hove. We will consider the whole of Sussex but will prioritise the BN post code
3. What we do...
The Friends mainly give grants to individuals – adults or kids – who need help. This could be for kit, or to go on tour or similar. We will also help those who have been injured while playing sport for either subsistence or help with medical bills. Finally, we will also consider making grants to organisations (schools and sport clubs in our area) for capital projects.
4. How to get help...
All you need to do is to complete the application form and send it to us. We will turn all forms around within 30 days and usually quicker. If you are a minor then your parent/guardian must complete the form. If we agree to help then we will confirm our offer to you and arrange transfer of the funds. It’s that simple.
