Join the Crusade(rs) – Our Urgent Pledge

We all have very personal, emotional, and unexpected stories to share since the appearance of Covid-19.Some have used this time at home productively to shape new beginnings or refresh current arrangements.

Unfortunately for Crusaders Rugby Football Club, a community, not for profit, amateur sports club, its plans to upgrade its club-house facilities stalled and our ability to obtain broader community support and financial investment have been impacted massively by Covid-19, hence our crowd funding pledge.

About Us

Crusaders Rugby Football Club is a not for profit amateur sports club situated in the heart of Little Melton on the outskirts of Norwich, Norfolk. Established for 60 years this year, the current club house, including changing rooms and communal showers, was built by its members during the mid1980’s to solely support the male adult teams playing and training at the time.

As a result of our very successful young engagement strategies, playing membership has significantly grown to circa 300 members, and now offers inclusive rugby to all (boys, girls, teenagers, ladies & men). This success has placed genuine demand on facilities to the point where upgrading has become both a necessity and a priority. This is where we hope you join our crusade.

Crusaders’ takes pride in being an inclusive and welcoming club, driven to support physical and mental wellbeing. However, the fact remains that we cannot support males and females changing and showering simultaneously due to the lack of dedicated facilities for them. The compromise caused by these issues reduces the level to which we can further develop our range of rugby teams, our school engagement programme as well as other community, business, and partnership links.

About our Pledge

We applied and gained planning permission to re-develop our premises to support the clubs current and future needs. The project has been costed at £550,000 + vat. So far, we have successfully secured £310,000 leaving us with ambitious, but achievable, target to raise. Our re-development plans are approved on the basis that building work commence by no later than June 2021 – this is where we hope for your support.

Our Belief in this Project

We strongly believe that the plans to develop our facilities will better serve all our current and new members, their families, the wider community allowing our club to continue to promote its inclusiveness, equality and diversity. This will also be a wonderful post covid-19 facility to welcome all back to sport when its right and safe to do so.

Thank you for considering our request to join our crusade.

The Power of Crusaders Rugby Club...A Parents Perspective

Update posted by Crusaders RUFC Development at 10:07 am

We received this powerful message from one of our parents, which bring to life the importance of our Club. You may want some tissues whilst reading. I have two girls, who have played through all age groups and now play in the girls only group. Since the start, the club. . . . .
