We’re Supporting The Next Generation Of Players And You Can Help Us!

Canterbury rugby players from grassroots team supporting the Bill McLaren Foundation.

As current restrictions around the game begin to lift, we will be supporting The Bill McLaren Foundation in developing, sustaining, and increasing the participation of grassroots rugby, which is crucial for the future of the game.

If you spend over £60.00 online, we’ll give you £5.00 off your purchase and then donate £5.00 to charity – The Bill McLaren Foundation.

The charity aims to support individuals and organisations to actively promote and develop rugby union and its values, as personified by Bill McLaren and to help provide opportunities for youngsters in sports.


From 15th June 2020, all purchases above £60.00 at canterbury.com will immediately trigger a £5.00 off-your-basket discount and once the transaction completes £5.00 will be sent straight to the Charitable Foundation.

The Charitable Foundation was set up in March 2010 to raise funds to support the development of rugby and its values and also to recognise the contribution Bill McLaren made to rugby through education and the development of an interpretative centre including Bill’s extensive archive including his big sheets.


Your support will serve three purposes: 

• To develop and promote the sport of rugby union and its values

• To encourage and provide sporting opportunities for young people

• To create an educative centre which will include the Bill McLaren Archive 

If you’d like to be part of it, head over to our online store and we’ll let you know once the donation has been received by The Bill McLaren Foundation, from us and you.
