The hard work and dedication of former President Roger Chamberlain supported by Kim Johnson was rewarded recently when their application for a grant to help the club provide better facilities or the Girls and Ladies section was rewarded when they were awarded a grant for £30,000 by the London Marathon Charitable Trust
Roger Chamberlain, former President and Life Member of Camberley Rugby Club, said:
"Camberley Rugby Club, and particularly our Girls and Youth sections, are most grateful and excited with the grant offer received from The London Marathon Charitable Trust. This will enable the Club to construct a new self-contained changing room for Girls and Ladies playing the game, ably supported by our two international England players, Fran and Alex Mathews, who have been on the England Women RFU books since it was formed nearly three years ago. The lack of these facilities has previously held back our development of this sector of rugby in Camberley and meant any aspiring female players have had to leave our club and move to others. With a number of schools to draw on throughout Surrey Heath and the surrounding area, this project will really help the youth players expand from the present numbers of almost 600 players."
