    • To establish a relationship between Newport RFC, its supporters and the community it serves.
    • To assist Newport RFC’s existing community projects.
    • To identify groups in the community that can benefit from a relationship with Newport RFC.
  • 14. Community Broad Achievements in the First Year :
    • Contact was made with all the schools and junior rugby clubs in the area served by Newport RFC’s Gateway Project. Schools that expressed an interest benefited from our token collection scheme. Some junior clubs have benefited from programme sponsorship and Bettws RFC received a trophy to award at their youth sevens tournament.
    • The Trust paid for some of the garments worn by the Gateway Officers whilst they carry out their school visits. This helped relieve the financial burden on the club. The Trust also launched and sponsored the highly successful art competition in conjunction with the Second Half Project.
    • As mentioned above, contact was made with many potential beneficiaries of our work. The feedback has been very useful in forming a strategy for moving forward.
  • 15. Community The Future :
    • A token collecting scheme for this year has already been launched. We have also been asked to consider a major sponsorship deal with the Newport Schools RFU. We will maintain contact with our existing community partners and will seek to gain more.
    • We would hope to be able to assist the Gateway Scheme financially as a regular project. The art competition was a major success and plans are being formed for next year’s competition.
    • We would like to strengthen our relationship with the club this year, and hopefully they can help us to encourage more support, especially from local schools.

The Trust is involved in many community schemes involving Newport RFC, schools, youth and other charities. Details of which can be found on the Trust website. To support these aims and initiatives the Trust does a lot of fundraising to help raise money. Therefore in keeping with this we are looking for sponsorship of the website.

  • 34. “ I think that the website is a very exciting development. It allows us to keep our loyal following informed of club developments. I would like to recognise the enormous amount of dedicated work that has to go in to such a project, not only in the start up stages but the ongoing maintenance and updating of the site. This is a testimony to all the hard work of those involved with FONR Trust. I would like to think that in the future both the coaches and players can provide you with material to help promote both the trust and website. Thanks again for your continued support.” Dai Rees Newport RFC Coach 9th February 2005
  • 35. “ What an excellent website, a must for all true supporters of Newport RFC. Congratulations to FONR Trust for what must have been labour of love to produce such detailed information on the complete history of the club. It brings back so many memories of Newport's heyday particularly as a young supporter during 1940's and 1950's, as a player in the 60's and coach in the 70's. Well done FONR Trust.” John Ryan Played 22 times for Newport from 1959/60 - 1961/62. Newport Coach from 1973-8 winning the Welsh Cup in 1977. Welsh Coach in 1988.
