Fundraising and events

RPT Events

The Rugby Portobello Trust is more than 80% donor-funded through our events and our generous local supporter base. We host various events throughout the year, welcoming over 1,000 supporters to our Portobello Dinner in September, our Brain Game in October and our Christmas Market in November. 

For 2020 our events have all gone virtual and we look forward to welcoming back our supporters to our live events in 2021.

Portobello Dinner

Our Portobello Dinner, a live auction and sit-down dinner, started in 2008 as a fundraiser amongst neighbours and is now central to the generation of funds for RPT's activities. The event takes place every September, welcoming more than 200 supporters and raising more than £250,000.
If you won't be joining us for the event, you can still take place in our online silent auction, which will be live up to one week before the event via this link:
Brain Game

Our annual Brain Game takes place each spring, welcoming 22 teams to an incredibly challenging quiz and dinner. Each year this event raises £20,000, giving vital support to our community-funded programmes. 

Previous table hosts are given a two-week pre-booking period before we send out booking details to our wider support base. If you are not on our database or want to register your interest for this event, please get in touch:

Christmas Market

Taking place each November, the RPT Christmas Market has been running for more than 30 years and is a highlight of the Notting Hill social calendar.
Our Christmas Market Committee personally selects more than 50 independent stallholders who sell bespoke and luxury goods, and our Committee and volunteers hand-make beautiful Christmas wreaths and home-baked goods for our famous home produce stall. One of the highlights of the event is our silent auction, which alone raises more than £30,000.
