RHYL and District Rugby Club have made a generous donation to a Prestatyn care home following an incredible response to a national fundraising campaign.

The Specsavers National League Division Two North were one of the teams that received a virtual visit from Clwb Rygbi Cymry Caerdydd during a charity effort than managed to raise more than £11,000 for health care workers and frontline staff during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Dragons received a tablet to distribute to a facility of their choice for taking part in the initiative, which chairman Tony Evans decided to give to Sanford Care Home in Prestatyn.

Things are progressing well in regards to the club’s ambitions off the pitch in readiness for the new season. This includes the construction of new floodlights that will allow the set-up to hold night games at their Tynewydd Fields base for the first time.

Another impressive development is the children’s play area which is being named in honour of legendary Dragons’ figure John Hardy, and work has now begun after a fundraising campaign received an immensely positive response form the community.

The club are also set to have a new beer garden in time for the season, where they will be aiming to achieve promotion to Division One North after a hugely encouraging campaign was cut short by the Welsh Rugby Union due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Rhyl and District were sitting in second position in the standings at the time of cancellation having led the league for long periods.
