Club kicks off season with donations

CHECKING IN: Lisa-Rae Brough of Brains Matter with TWFRC President Jim Hendley

Tunbridge Wells Rugby Club (TWRFC) invited two charities along to their first home game of the season on Saturday September 2, to present them both with a donation for their work in the community.

Brains Matter and Nourish Foodbank were presented with £1,230 each by TWRFC President Jim Hendley at the lunch, which was held before the match at St Mark’s Recreation Ground, Frant Road. TWRFC went on to beat Marlborough 36-21.

Lisa Rae-Brough, Deputy Manager at Brains Matter and Dawn Stanford, Operations Director at Nourish Foodbank attended the lunch on behalf of both the local charities.

They both thanked TWRFC for the donation which was raised through raffles and donations at home game lunches during the 2022/23 season.

Brains Matter was a pertinent choice for the club due to their increased recognition of sports-related head injuries, and Nourish was chosen due to their continued support of individuals and families struggling in the economic climate.

TWRFC are looking to support the local community. If your charity would like to be considered for the 2023/24 season please email

The next home game match for TWRFC is September 16, 3pm kick-off.
