It has been hugely heartening that over the past couple of weeks the members of Esher Rugby have responded so generously to our appeal for help. Donations of funds, auction prizes and valuable time are all extremely welcome and will be used wisely to keep the Club functioning during this period.
All staff other than Jamie Robinson and Jorgina Robinson have now been furloughed for the forseeable future. Jamie and Jorgina (not related!) have been retained in the short term to manage the club from a financial perspective as well as overseeing any operational needs. If this changes you will be advised.
None of us knows when we will be through this crisis and we need to be in good shape when our doors open again.
Thanks again to all who have supported and continue to support our club.
If you still wish to contribute then please see the links below to our funding page, the online silent auction site and details to join the 500 club all of which provide different options.
A message from John Inverdale
This is going to be a long challenge for all of us so first of all, thanks so much to everyone who has contributed so far to the 'GoFundMe' target. We have exceeded our wildest expectations...
But there is a continual need for funds over the summer which is why we have launched the online auction with so many members contributing items for sale and all the funds raised go to the club.
There are some great opportunities for all of us - I'm offering an instant sports library of 100 books - and there is sports equipment and all sorts of memorabilia that you can bid for.
Please have a look and bid if you can. The past fortnight has shown the remarkable support Esher has across the generations. It would be great to continue this togetherness off the field for the forthcoming months."
