When we were researching which charities to support we often spoke about the power of rugby and how it can bring children from differing backgrounds together, developing the values of teamwork, effort and respect. This is something that can be seen at Keynsham RFC every week. We are a club that has thrived, not struggled, since Covid and have continued to attract children from all walks of life.

We also spoke about the fact that sport can be a tool for good as an alternative to a lot of the distractions in life that children face as they grow up. With this in mind, we discussed supporting the Matt Ratana Foundation. This is a charity that the club's Tour Committee strongly believe reflects and shares the values of Keynsham RFC.
