Pitchero Club

The best way to keep up to date with Old Patesians RFC - Cheltenham



Old Patesians RFC is a not for profit organisation. We raise money to keep the running costs of the rugby club going, such as equipment, kit, transport and facilities. As times are getting tighter, we require more help than ever. Below are some of the ways we are raising funds to ensure the club progresses on and off the pitch.

RFU Grand Draw:

As part of a Rugby Football Union, the National Governing Body of rugby in England, they have set up a Grand Draw. This is a chance to raise extra funds to help support the rugby within schools and clubs. 90% of all money raised, the school or club gets to keep and this can be used to buy new equipment or kit.

These can be sold to family, friends or work colleagues with the top prize being £10,000. All players will be issued with some and they will be sold at home matches. The more sold, the more money the rugby club raises towards the rugby here!

Full details can be found at:

If you are interested in buying a larger amount or any questions, contact Club Captain Connor Thompson at

Club Captain's Raffle:

Every month the Club Captain's Raffle will be giving supporters or players the chance to win a variety of prizes. Tickets will be sold at 1st XV home matches and Junior/Mini training and matches. All profits go to the rugby club directly. £1 a ticket, have as many as you want and winners will be announced on the website, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Easyfundraising Site:

Now you can help Old Pats just by shopping online. The Easyfundraising page for Old Pats RFC allows the club to raise money easily just by using it to search through retailers, make a purchase and then the club gets a donation. You can use this to get holidays, travel, insurance... Basically anything!

You can add to it ‘donation reminders’ which tell you when on a retailer website, whether it can offer a donation. Further to this, you can also register your debit/credit cards so that when you use it on the high street, you can get donations back to the club i.e. Nero Coffee shop give a 5% donation when the card is used in store.

You can donate as little or as much as you would like to the rugby club. You can be publicised or remain anonymous. If you are interested in this, please contact Club Captain Connor Thompson at
