Bath RFC Ladies are aiming to set up a new girls rugby section in Bath.
They want to introduce under13s, under 15s and under 18s teams.
Currently there is only provision for girls to play up to the age of 11, with the minis - a mixed girls and boys team.
At the age of 18 they can join the ladies, but until then they can only play rugby in school.
The club would spend their share of the money on setting up teams to enable them to continue with the sport after leaving the minis.
This will keep them fit and active, and allow them to meet new people while playing rugby for a club.
By giving them more opportunity to play it will also build up their skills.
They will then be able to take these skills to the ladies team when they turn 18.
Money would also be spent on equipment for the girls, food for catering the matches, travel to away games, and kit.
Bath RFC Ladies would also use any funding they receive to produce leaflets to promote the teams and encourage more girls to play.
The team feels it is a shame that there is nowhere in Bath that girls under the age of 18 can play rugby.
With help from the Wish campaign they aim to address this situation, and give girls the chance to play and enjoy the sport.
