We are ecstatic to announce that Rugby for Heroes has partnered with Plymouth Albion and is now our official charity partner.
We have taken part in several events with RFH, including last year’s charity game between the Armed Forces Legends and a Rugby for Heroes team.
With this announcement, we can also confirm that next year’s charity game hosted by RFH will take place on 29 July 2024, which falls on Armed Forces Day.
We are incredibly proud to support causes in and around our community that are close to our hearts, and close to the hearts of so many that support, partner and associate with us.
RFH assists members of the armed forces in transitioning to civilian life when the time comes for them to return home.
Many aspects of rugby and the Armed Forces are intertwined, and RFH champions these as it seeks to physically and mentally ease heroes into society after their service comes to an end.
It is our enormous pleasure, not only to associate with such an organisation, but to officially partner with them too.
Max Venables, Managing Director at Plymouth Albion, said: “We are really pleased about this partnership; Rugby For Heroes does brilliant work for military personnel and veterans and we couldn’t be happier to be able to partner with them and help them in their mission to ensure a good life for those leaving the forces.”
Rugby For Heroes’ Chairman, Simon Bailey, added: “We’re extremely glad to have joined forces with Plymouth Albion as we continue our goal to provide a smooth transition to civilian life for all members of the armed forces.
“A club with close links to the Armed Forces, we know how much this means to Albion, and they share our collective ambition to provide for those who have served us so bravely.
“We can’t wait to get to work with them on some really exciting events, and this is a fantastic step forward for us.”
