It’s been a few months since Christmas and the novelty of some of those gifts are wearing off now. The late night online purchases of lockdown are gathering dust in the attic. Kids have grown up and left all their unwanted items cluttering up your spare room. But what to do with all this stuff?
Well lucky for you, we have the answer! We’ll be holding a monthly car boot sale with the first one being on 11th May, the perfect time to kickstart a spring clean! One mans rubbish is another mans gold!
Spaces are limited so if you’re wanting a pitch we suggest booking online (you can also book for future car boot sales!) https://strathmore-community-rugby-trust.eventcube.io/

The Grumpy Gryphons come from all over and ride for a range of reasons. Raising money for local causes is one of their fundamental principles and that’s why we’re excited that they’ll be taking part in the Ride the North event to raise money for Strathmore Community Rugby Trust. The money raised will go towards the cost of running the Trust projects with their main focus being on raising money for our award winning Autism-Friendly rugby project.

We’re delighted that they’ve chosen us and if you’d like to support them with a donation then that can be done by following this link here

Are you interested in sport and working with older adults? We might have the opportunity for you…..

Strathmore Community Rugby Trust and Strathmore Cricket Club are working in partnership to deliver Sporting Memories sessions throughout Forfar and Kirriemuir. The Sporting Memories sessions support a wide range of people aged 50+. They focus on bringing adults over 50 together to reduce isolation and loneliness, improve their mental wellbeing and help them become more active to live a healthier lifestyle. We have weekly and monthly clubs delivered at a variety of locations. At each session we deliver an on-topic reminiscing session followed by a light physical activity session to suit the abilities and interest of the group. For example, in the build up to Rugby World Cup we have sessions relating to rugby and in the summer during Wimbledon we focussed on tennis. We have a variety of roles for volunteers which all combine to ensure the smooth and successful running of our club.

We are looking for volunteers that may be interested in helping with some of the below roles:

Club Supporter

Club Resource Maker

Club Reporter

Club Guest

If you have any questions about any of the roles or would like to volunteer, please contact Mia White, Community Project Worker at Strathmore Community Rugby Trust.
