Partners and Sponsors

The following organisations played an important part in the development of Gloucester Rugby Heritage:

Gloucester Rugby, the history of which is of course the reason for the project. The Club provides at its Kingsholm stadium a venue for heritage displays, exhibits, meetings, interviews and events, and actively supports the project with advice and facilitation.

Gloucestershire Archives preserves and offers access to the cultural and corporate memory of Gloucestershire. It provides environmentally controlled storage of documents, photographs and audio-visual recordings, and supports communities in keeping Gloucestershire’s heritage alive. It is the main source of material for research by Gloucester Rugby Heritage with its holdings of local publications, and provides support with professional assistance and archival storage of documents, photographs and audio/visual records.

Friends of Gloucestershire Archives educates and raises public awareness of the role of Gloucestershire Archives and raises funds for Archives projects. It was responsible for monitoring the administration of Gloucester Rugby Heritage until August 2016.

National Heritage Lottery Fund is the UK’s leading advocate for the value of heritage to modern life. It sustains and transforms our heritage through innovative investment in projects with a lasting impact on people and places, and provided the majority of the early funding for Gloucester Rugby Heritage through a grant of £49,900.

Ecclesiastical Insurance, a company which has been based in Gloucester almost as long as Gloucester Rugby, provided valuable funding of the project for three years

We are grateful to all of our partners, without each of whom Gloucester Rugby Heritage could not have grown into its present form, and we thank them for their enthusiastic support.

In addition, a number of sponsors stepped up to the mark to help fund our second book.
