Clevedon RFC have set up an online auction of promises to help raise funds for the club on March 12.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has seen the club lose money, and according to the club's revenue, each Six Nations weekend would bring in thousands of pounds at least.

Despite this there are things at the club which still need to paid for, including rent, rates, gas, electricity, replacing and replenishing waste stock, Sky TV subscription and general upkeep of the premises and pitches.

And there are a lot of prizes on offer, including a couple of hours of golf tuition, two hours French speaking tuition, five days of 'man with van', a Mexican meal including tequila for six cooked and delivered, a barbecue chef for up to 20 people, and four hours of garden maintenance or landscaping.

Other prizes include a commissioned vintage drinks cabinet, a voucher for four people to play at the Kendalshire Golf Club, a meal for eight people cooked and served in your home and two hours of one-to-one cricket coaching.
