Dear Clubs,

Just over a year ago Durham County along with Acorn set up a player wellbeing and mental health service for Rugby clubs in Durham County. The service is totally funded by the county and free to all clubs within the county.

Acorn and the DCRFU have made a difference and have turned 3 players from different ages life around and playing rugby again. The service that is offered is all confidential and immediate help is on hand.

The Player Wellbeing/Mental Health of players is something as a Rugby Family we can help by on the 14th December 2019 holding a raffle at your club with the proceeds going to DCRFU to help support Acorn counsellors and the wellbeing of players from within the county.

We are making a difference and look forward to the Rugby Family coming together. All donations can be sent to DCRFU Treasurer David Thompson.

Kind Regards

Paul Geehan

DCRFU Safeguarding Manager
