Rugby World Cup Games & Weekly Quiz in Memory of Issy

Issy will never get the chance to enjoy her first job at McKays, and in her memory, we want to do what we can to support other young people, to help them reach their full potential.

Issy was 17, a talented rugby player, with Maidenhead RFC and England under 17s. Her family are friends of McKays and Issy had talked about a summer job with us. Sadly this was not meant to be, as Issy made the decision to take her own life in 2023, leaving her family, friends and team-mates devastated at the loss of this beautiful, loving and talented young girl.



It’s believed that 25% of rugby players experience mental health challenges.

BraveMind charity provides a national platform to take action and help rugby clubs and schools to improve their approach to supporting mental health in their community.

In honour of Issy and her family, McKays are proud to support BraveMind as our chosen charity for the remainder of the year.

Join us for our Quiz Nights every Thursday in September and October, where all entry fees will be donated to BraveMind. We’ll also be screening Rugby World Cup games in memory of Issy, and collecting donations.

It would mean so much to us and Issy’s family if you could join us for one of the events, donate using our Just Giving page or even just take the time to find out more and show some support to BraveMind. All of the links can be found below.
