Canton RFC, Whitehead RFC, Maesteg RFC, Bala RFC and Nantgaredig RFC need your support having been shortlisted for the NatWest 'Win a Pitch Makeover' during their NatWest RugbyForce Weekend, held between 15th - 16th August 2015. Developed in partnership with the WRU, NatWest RugbyForce is a community initiative designed to make rugby clubs stronger businesses by improving and renovating their facilities with the support of volunteers and the local community over one weekend ahead of the new season.
This year, a fantastic number of clubs registered for NatWest RugbyForce, giving them a shot of earning a special £500 financial support package. All registered clubs were asked to submit a project plan for their NatWest RugbyForce Weekend, with only the best 30 receiving the £500 grant. To support clubs who missed out on a £500 grant, each will receive promotional materials to help encourage the community to get involved in the NatWest RugbyForce weekend so that they can still progress with their planned projects or host a community event.
An expert panel, consisting of representatives from the WRU and NatWest, assembled and assessed all the entries and plans carefully. After extensive deliberation the 30 best plans were chosen to receive the grant.
In addition to selecting those clubs who would earn a grant, the panel whittled the list down further to find the five clubs most worthy of the ultimate prize - the NatWest 'Win a Pitch Makeover'. Up for grabs is:
- A visit from ex Wales and Lions legend Scott Quinnell over their NatWest RugbyForce Weekend
- A brand new pitch kit
- A set of Under Armour training tops with their club crest
