Do we get 50% of the full price or 50% of the discounted STH price?

I believe it's 50% of full price.

Yes - 50% of the full price.

The issue here isn't that members only get 50%.  The issue is that the club wrote to members asking for donations to the foundation.  They did not say in that communication that the reason for the request is because the club will now be using the resale funds for other items.  The communication was incredibly disingenuous.

If the club wants to change the focus of where the 50% is spent, that is fine - but do not then write to the fans in advance of that announcement trying to pull the wool over people's eyes.

On a separate note, I so wish that the club communications separated out mens team / ladies / academy etc so that we could opt in or out depending on our interests.

50% of the price the ticket was sold at. So if sold on a concession price to a senior or a child ticket you get less money back.

There are certain areas where there are no concessions though.

I was told by email that something from Quins would be sent to me soon. It turned out to be the begging letter. I'm only a mere jester and saw £250 which I thought was a lot. £25 maybe. If it was the only charity I donate to ,no problem but it isn't.
    Just a thought but is this change because of some tax reason?

There's no way I can afford to spend £250 on Quins' charitable doings. Get some of the rich backers to dip their hands into their pockets if they want to feel smug and signal their virtue.

No truer words written. Always the money men and women with the tight pockets relying on the working class to provide the money. Some cheek.

Virtue signalling is when you do something that takes no effort in order to make yourself look better.

So setting up and funding a foundation to use rugby to improve people’s lives really isn’t virtue signalling, regardless of how it’s paid for. It would have been easier to just change their Facebook avatar.

If we’re going to use ludicrous phrases that people throw around as insults on social media in our brave new world where there are no boundaries to rudeness, could we at least aim to use them more precisely.

You might as well say Cancer Research are virtue signalling, certainly I went into one of their shops the other day and couldn’t find anyone researching cancer, there were just some old ladies trying to flog an old rocking horse and some books and jumpers.

Point partially taken.
Although how much good the thing does is a moot point.
Frankly them pleading for more of my money to spend on their project to make themselves seem worthy and caring does seem like some sort of nonsense of some description to me. (And as I'm skint at the moment it ain't going to happen anyway.)

Does anyone have a pair of tickets spare for tonight that aren't being used? myself and a friend are keen to go, and willing to pay (although hopefully less than face value as we are recent graduates). Based in Richmond but can meet at ground or within a reasonable distance. Thanks

Before I ask the club, any thoughts on the following?

If a child ticket is put up for sale and resold to an adult, would you expect to get 50% of the child ticket price or 50% of the resale price?  I has assumed the latter but it looks like we got 50% of our own ticket price as each of our child tickets got half a child price back and each adult half the price of an adult ticket.  Unlikely that a family chose the tickets and filled them exactly as we would.
