Richmond Rugby are delighted to announce additional community support through our partnership with the Dons Local Action Group by offering a daily food drop-off point outside Tesco Extra in Twickenham (TW7 7JY).

The drop-off point will start from tomorrow and will operate daily to support those in need during COVID-19. The food items we are focusing on include: Non-perishables, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, tinned fruit, rice, pasta sauces and cereals.

Head of Community Dom Palacio, said: “We are extremely proud to be working alongside the Dons Local Action Group in offering another hugely important service to our local community. We have been blown away by the support and generosity of our community in recent weeks and this new initiative is another fantastic way of helping those in need and providing essential food and support during this extremely challenging period.”

Alongside the daily support at Tesco Extra Twickenham, Richmond Rugby will continue to run our food/tech drop-off point at the Richmond Athletic Ground every Saturday from 12pm-4pm. Click here for more info.
