We also hold Charity 'Dinner with a Legend' events to honour players and heroes of the game.  Take a look at some of our past recipients.

Charity Rugby Matches

Welsh Charitables RFC has organised a number of fund-raising rugby matches across Wales, raising money for our charities.

Supporting Young Players

We have involved ourselves in the identification and development of young Welsh players through the 15 and 7’s side game at numerous age groups. We have endeavoured to select young players on the fringe of full age grade International Honours to enable them to further press their claims for a cap all selections are made in consultations with the WRU and Regional Academy Managers.

"Croeso Cynnes", a Warm Welcome to the Welsh Charitables RFC Website

Through the medium of rugby the Welsh Charitables RFC raise funds for a number of worthy charities throughout the Principality namely; St Anne's Hospice, WREX (Welsh Rugby Former International Players Association) Ty-Hafan the family hospice for young lives; The Princes Trust Cymru, St David's Foundation Hospice Care and British Heart Foundation Cymru, and we are all very proud to support these worthwhile causes. 

We regularly hold charity fund raising events such as Sportsmen's Dinners, Celebrity Golf Days, Tribute Dinners, Dinners with a Legend and a number of charity rugby games in and throughout Wales.

Our events are always supported by a number of former Welsh International and British Lion Rugby Players, which adds to that very special ambience of the occasion.

We are always looking for new Vice Presidents to join us all the time and support us with our fund raising ventures, so please take a look around our web site to find out more and if you think you can help us in any way towards our fund raising please don't hesitate to contact us, or download the invitation and form to become a member.

We are a very friendly group and would welcome your support and new ideas which will also help us raise money for our supported charities.

Yours in sport,

David CG Power
Hon Secretary Welsh Charitables RFC
