Charity of the year 

We are delighted to be chosen as the first ever local Charity of the Year for Harpenden Rugby Club for the rugby season 24/25.

Harpenden Rugby Club has produced many top professional players at both club and international level. With a history spanning over a century, the club stands as one of England’s premier level 5 amateur clubs, boasting a vibrant community comprising 3 senior men’s sides and a women’s team, minis, juniors (both girls and boys), and a mixed ability group. Additionally, the club hosts various tournaments throughout the year, such as the annual Pubs 7’s event, now in its 54th year.

They are planning a number of fundraising events of the next 12 months to support AT Society and raise awareness of AT.

This charity partnership presents an excellent opportunity for fundraising as well as raising awareness of Ataxia Telangiectasia (AT), and the people living with this condition whom the charity supports.

Community fundraising

Community fundraising events are a brilliant way to raise vital funds and raise awareness of AT and the work of the AT Society.

The choice of event is entirely up to you! Here are just a few ideas to get you started:

• Host a coffee morning or cheese and wine evening for friends
• Organise a collection at your local supermarket or apply for support via one of the token schemes
• Arrange a retiring collection at a local concert or play
• Run a raffle or tombola at a local fete or fair
• Ask your child’s school to support us with a non-uniform day
• Open your garden to the public and serve afternoon tea
• Organise a charity golf day or sporting tournament at your local club
• Quiz nights are always popular
• ‘Tea at 3’ cake sale at work
• Make it tasty with a Curry Night! Many restaurants offer good value set menus for charity nights and then you decide how much to charge for tickets

We love supporting community events and can offer bags of enthusiastic help and advice to help you make the most of your event. We can also supply AT branded banners, balloons, collection buckets or tubs.

Every pound you raise will help make a difference and enable us continue to offer a lifeline to everyone living with AT and fund medical research.
