The 2018-2019 season marks the inaugural season of the Thanet Wanderers Schools and Community Programme.

Our fundraising, to date, along with support from London Array, Miles and Barr, the RFU, Kent RFU and Thanet Wanderers RUFC has allowed us to provide curriculum coaching, after schools clubs (hubs), inter school matches, rugby festivals, referees, balls, kits, training for coaches, all types of equipment, and so on.

This year our local schools and community have benefited from over £20,000.00 of funded support.

They say 'a picture paints a thousand words' you can see how far we have come in our first season from the two images showing our first week and our most recent week.
