Newark Rugby Club is appealing to members and supporters to vote for the Kelham Road clubhouse project in a national website poll.

The club is calling for the support to help win funding as part of the Aviva Community Fund 2017.

On offer is funding of up to £25,000 for community projects around the country. Voting in the on-line poll ends on Monday at midnight.

Those projects which can the most votes could be entered into the finals, where a judging panel will award the funds.

The Newark club are presently building the second phase of three in a project to rebuild their HQ.

So far the club has built a new changing block and is the process of completing a further phase including club shop, office, meeting rooms and toilets.

The final stage, incorporating new club room, dining room and kitchen, will start next May if the club can find the final funds in a project which will cost over £1 million.

That is why the club are appealing to members and supporters to vote in an effort to gain funds from the Aviva community pot.

President Alan Swain, who has led the fund-raising efforts, said: “If we are successful with this application it will help give us all a fantastic club room and kitchen that will serve the club for many years to come.

“We are asking our players, members and supporters to make one final effort to complete our fund-raising effort.

“We have been indebted to many people who have supported the club in various fund-raising efforts over the past few years.

“We are asking everyone to click onto the Aviva link and spare us a few minutes to help with our application.”
