LIARFC needs YOU - Emergency COVID-19 appeal

First and foremost, I hope that you and your families are staying safe during this unprecedented period of time, managing to keep your spirits up despite lockdowns, social distancing, homeschooling and no organised sport to keep us active and entertained. 

It has been five weeks since the RFU suspended all rugby in England rather abruptly and the early season finish has had a big impact to the Club and especially to our finances.  Like many clubs, London Irish Amateur relies on key events in the latter stages of the season to generate the vital income used to fund the ongoing running costs of our Club. 

A number of key and very significant fundraising events have been cancelled including:
 
·       St. Patrick’s Day Festival
·       London Irish Mini Festival
·       London Irish City Lunch
·       Leprechaun Lunch
·       Annual Awards Dinner and
·       Walton Heath Golf Day

 This season we not only missed attending some of our favourite events, but we have also incurred some significant costs required to facilitate them. 

The Club has already undertaken a number of measures to cut outgoings and is working with our key suppliers and stakeholders at Hazelwood to manage our payments.  We have investigated and applied for available Grants but need to generate some of the lost income estimated at £40.000.

 This appeal will help the Club ensure that we are in a position to restart Rugby at London Irish Amateur RFC in September (earlier for our adults) and kick off the season with a proper One Club Hooley at Hazelwood! 

We recognise that times are tough but are hopeful that our members, supporters and friends of London Irish Amateur will contribute if you are able.

 Yours Sincerely,

 Kevin Flynn

Chairman
