Successful Applications!

At the beginning of 2017/18 Rugby Union season the Exeter Chiefs Supporters Club introduced a ‘Small Grants Scheme’ to support our aim of providing financial and practical support to deserving causes connected to the sport of Rugby Union and especially to Youth Development.  Details of this scheme and how to apply are on our website

In the first year of its introduction we received ten applications for grants. Of these ten, six were successful, two deferred to a later date due to possible Insurance claims, and two refused by the committee as not being within our remit. The successful applicants were as follows:
