Dorking Rugby Fundraising
As you may well know, we are currently in the midst of fundraising as part of a Medical and Rehabilitation Gym project. Building works are underway and the efforts of club members to get us this far have been immense – a big thank you to everyone who has supported so far.
The project will ultimately provide us with new physio treatment rooms, a rehab gym, no-step accessible balcony, new main entrance, additional accessible WC, and internal alterations to accommodate a permanent club shop, larger downstairs servery and an office.
We are building not just for the current players and members, but for the future generations; those in the youth and the minis, and indeed those yet to come. That’s why we’re appealing to everyone to help wherever they can.

IMPORTANT COVID-19 NOTICE
Lockdown and restrictions are taking their toll. As a local charity, we’re suffering just like so many other small businesses. To survive and thrive, we really need your help. When you attend a game or training, please do grab a drink or snack from the bar or servery to help out. Additionally, we would urge all members to pay their membership. We can’t do this without you.
