DONATIONS TO THE MUSEUM

Building this on-line museum to celebrate the history of rugby football has been our passion for the last 20+ years. Donations of memorabilia help us to record the history of rugby football, the people who played and administered the game and the supporters that followed it. 

If you are thinking of making a donation to the museum the collection is large and bulky, please contact us first by email or telephone so that we can assess how we can best support your generosity with the transportation of the collection.
