Rugby for Heroes Festival is an annual charity Rugby and Music Festival set up in 2009 to raise funds for a number of major Armed Forces charities and a local not for profit cause, 353.
Since the first festival was held, the event has gone from strength to strength with almost £78,000 raised so far for Help for Heroes and many other good causes supporting our servicemen and women, and their families.
We have also added additional fundraising event to our calendar, and in 2012 held our first ever Rugby for Heroes Charity Ball and then the first charity golf day in 2014.
OLRFC Rugby for Heroes is not a charity in its own right. At its heart is an energetic weekend fundraiser and celebration of rugby, music, our armed forces and those men and women of the West Midlands who have fallen in Iraq and Afghanistan (and other conflicts).
All profits generated from the Festival and other supporting events are donated to the registered charities supported. It is organised and run in partnership with Old Leamingtonians RFC, a community rugby club founded in 1931.
