Head along to Strathie Casino for a night of fun (and fundraising!)

There’ll be Blackjack & Roulette tables (buy chips on the night, all proceeds to Strathmore Community Rugby Trust) and the player with the most chips at the end of the night wins.

You can also follow the clues round the Club House to uncover the truth behind the missing rugby coach without blowing your cover as high rolling international person of mystery determined to win big at the tables. Complete the mission to earn extra chips!

Entry is free, but we suggest you reserve your place here so Q can prepare for you!

The bar will be open and black tie is optional, you’re undercover after all!

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

Agriculture and construction equipment and services group Agricar has joined our team of sponsors.

The trust was founded in 2017 to increase public participation in sport, particularly rugby union and rugby league, in the Forfar, Kirriemuir and Brechin areas to benefit community health and wellbeing as well as develop young people into healthy, positive members of the community through the positive ethos and values of rugby.

It’s since developed to run projects for people of all ages and abilities, including rugby for primary children with or undergoing diagnosis for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their siblings, Walking Rugby for adults, Unified Rugby for adults and youths with disabilities and a Rugby Academy for senior school pupils to learn life as well as rugby skills. It also works with partners on projects to benefit older and isolated people through regular events to chat and enjoy group activities.

Award

The trust, which works in partnership with Strathmore RFC, Brechin RFC, sportscotland, Scottish Rugby, Scotland Rugby League and Sporting Memories, has had its activities recognised at the Scottish Charity Awards with the Pioneering Project Award in 2020 for the ASD rugby project, a Royal visit in July 2019 by TRH The Duke & Duchess of Edinburgh and the Duke becoming its Royal Patron in August 2020.

The trust funds its work from a range of sources including grants, donations and events as well as sponsorship by companies including Stracathro Estates and Shepherd Chartered Surveyors. It has a range of opportunities for others looking to show their commitment to supporting community wellbeing.

Family values

Multi-award-winning Forfar-based Agricar Group has now joined the team of sponsors as part of its support for the Angus communities it’s based in. “As a family business strong on family values, we’re proud to support The Strathmore Community Rugby Trust and all it’s involved in because it makes a very positive impact on the lives of many individuals in the local area as well as the wider community,” said Agricar Director, Wendy Smith.

Trust Vice-Chair, Gordon Cairns, said: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Agricar to our team of vital sponsors as it’s a local company with a long history of being invested socially and economically in Angus and shares our ethos of developing the community through its people.

“There are a range of ways companies and other organisations can support the trust’s work. For more information, or for an informal chat, email”

All of our projects rely on the support of the people in our community.  Ian is one of our volunteer enablers for our Unified Rugby Team – the Strathie Clan.  The Strathie Clan is a team for adults with additional support needs, and we also have a youth version for young people in S1-S6 called our youth unified rugby team.

Ian’s role as an enabler is to get the players playing rugby.  It’s about getting the players involved in the game, getting the ball into their hands and getting them running round the park and scoring tries.  Both teams train weekly on a Wednesday and we also arrange matches with other Clan’s throughout Scotland.

We are looking for more enablers to help support both programmes.  Ideally you would have a little knowledge of rugby but it’s not essential.  The players are supported by their peers so for the Strathie Clan we are looking for adults, for the youth unified rugby team we are looking for players in S1-S6.  For more information about each programme click the links below.
