Men's Rugby Union WRU creates fund to help those impacted by Storm Dennis

THE Welsh Rugby Union has set aside £100,000 to support clubs affected by Storm Dennis.

The WRU has been working to assess the impact of the storm in rugby communities in Wales and has announced it will provide extra help and funding to the affected clubs.

An “exceptional circumstances” fund of £100,000 has been created, and the WRU is sourcing other resources to help tackle the problems.

WRU chief executive officer Martyn Phillips said: "These are exceptional circumstances and we have therefore decided to allocate dedicated funds and resources to help out rugby clubs in need in communities throughout the country.

"There is money put aside for emergencies such as these and we will take great care to ensure both money and resources in the right areas so that we are helping those who need it the most."

There will be a bucket collection at the Wales international match in Cardiff this weekend against France to raise additional funds.
