The sport of wheelchair rugby can be a costly one to take part in. The chairs can cost several thousands to buy and then due to the punishment they can take through the years, maintenance can often be specialised. Tyres and especially Inner-tubes need constant replacing but the biggest cost to the club is travel and accommodation.

As we are the only team in Scotland all our competitions are held in England, this often involves traveling many hundreds of miles with a two night stay over. The players pay all their own traveling costs, keeping these costs down where they can, by car and room sharing but the expense to the club can be quite considerable.

The club greatly appreciates any and all donations that are made to the club which can be made at our local giving page.
