Welcome to the Rugby Group Benevolent Fund


The Rugby Group Benevolent Fund has once again supported a wide range of community projects drawn from the different areas where Rugby Cement used to operate.

The initiatives we are backing range from helping local people find new jobs and beat drug addiction to making much needed repairs to village halls. What matters is the capacity of each project to make a difference to individuals and to families.
