Hearts + Balls is managed and administered solely by volunteers and does not employ any paid staff.

We run our own events and work to support partners fundraising efforts by  providing merchandise, raffle items, and promotional items such as wristbands and badges.

We will continue to build the profile of Hearts + Balls through regular communication and input into events and programmes at schools, clubs and other organisations.

Our funds are managed in accordance with good governance utilising the skills and services of the trustees and those of its Independent Examiners.

Our Charity will always have sufficient funds available to meet sudden requests for immediate assistance by an individual or family.

Hearts + Balls organise regular fund-raising events and challenges – some of them energetic, others less so.

See the News and Events sections for details of forthcoming events.

Organise an event

You can stage your own fundraising event. Please talk to us beforehand to ensure that the event is in line with Hearts + Balls standards and aims.

We can also send you a Hearts + Balls rugby shirt to raffle or auction. All we ask is that you raise a minimum of £1000. Simply email us details, and we will send you a shirt and details of how and where to send your donation.
