‘Developing People Through Rugby’.
Strathmore Community Rugby Trust was established on 1 June 2017. We are a charitable organisation (Scottish Charity Number SC047475) which believes rugby has the power to enhance people’s lives. We aim to instil the rugby ethos into participants, coaches, and volunteers of all ages so that they can develop and enjoy the physical and mental health benefits of rugby, play an active part in their local community, and have a lifelong involvement in rugby. We aim to operate sustainable programmes centred on our values of rugby, health, and community.
Following the retirals of existing Trustees, we are now seeking interest from people with an understanding of the principles of governance to join the Strathmore Community Rugby Trust Board to ensure we achieve our strategic goals and to help us identify new opportunities. The Board of Trustees is seeking to appoint a Treasurer and a General Trustee.
