Background

We are The Richmond Heavies Foundation – the heart of the Richmond rugby family. The Richmond Heavies is the veteran’s side of Richmond Rugby Club in West London, one of the oldest clubs in the world. It is an amateur club running thriving seniors youth and mini divisions, for both men and women.

2019 saw unexpected bereavements of three young players related to the veterans side of the club. This led to the creation of a charitable foundation to help protect all at the club, as well as being able to help those immediately impacted, by a serious illness or bereavement.

Aims

Our PROTECT mission is to extend lives and prevent avoidable early deaths by facilitating cardiac screening, provide access to confidential mental health services and increase health awareness.

Our SUPPORT mission is to assist families, especially dependents, affected by sudden death or life-changing injury and encourage community rugby participation.

We want everyone in the wider rugby family to get involved so please help and support us.

Initial Fundraising

Following a successful initial fundraising lunch a second was undertaken in September 2019.

Initial Use of the Money Raised

We have established a heart screening programme for all players and coaches at the club over the age of fourteen

We have created a mental health support programme for all players

We have established sporting bursaries for kids unable to afford the membership fees

We have supported the families of those taken unexpectedly

We aim to roll out learnings and support to other clubs less fortunate than us

It was the wishes of the late Peter Bray, who died 17th July 2023 that all collections from his funeral be donated to the Richmond Rugby Club Heavies Foundation. As a long life member of the club, and whose son Matt Bray played throughout his early years it was fitting that this money be passed on to such a worthwhile cause. From Peter and the wider Bray family we hope this money is put to great use.
