Hi… Just wanted to say a huge you for helping some of the girls this season. I have thanked you on social media but wanted to drop you a line…. it really did make a difference to those girls who wouldn’t otherwise have been able to participate due to financial constraints.

One girl in particular and her mother have just come out of a really dark period on their life and mum tells me finding rugby has been the making of her daughter …. the player is so determined to do well and I’m really looking forward to seeing how she progresses. Thanks again – Manj (Hove Rfc)

Just a note to say a massive thank you to the Friends of Hove for supporting 2 players and a parent to join us on our u13 tour last weekend to Kent.

It’s really important to our group that everyone is able to participate in all aspects of our season. Without the funding provided by the FoH, the tour becomes an exclusive event which goes against the team and club ethos.

The individuals that were awarded the funds remain an integral part of the squad and enjoyed all the team bonding experiences that only a tour can generate. The application process is perfectly easy and discrete and the awards were very much appreciated by all applicants. 

We were warmly welcomed and played some closely fought matches at Medway RFC and Cranbrook RFC, and will no doubt seek to get fixtures with them again next season. 

Thanks to you and all the FoH supporters.

From a grateful parent…

I would like a say a huge thank you to the Friends of Hove Rugby for the financial support it has provided to me in a time of need. Thanks to their generosity, my son is able to continue to play Rugby – a sport he is extremely passionate about while being very proud of representing Hove!

Further, the Friends have ensured that he is still able to travel with the club on their upcoming tour! Without their support, none of this would have been possible, so on behalf of both my son and I, we would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude.

The U14s were desperate to go on tour and had selected Guernsey as their destination. Because of this, flights were involved and some boys and their families were finding it difficult to raise the money.

We had heard of the new organisation “The Friends” and we applied for a grant. We were delighted to receive £500.00 which was put into a pot to benefit all the players that were touring.

Without doubt, some boys would just not have been able to tour and so we thank the Friends for assisting us and giving some of the less well off boys this chance of a lifetime.
