Rugby Club Fun Day raises more than £2,000 for Royal Marsden Cancer Charity
There was a great turn out at the Paddock on Saturday 26 September at a Family Fun Day to raise funds for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. In the sunshine the Bouncy Castle, Bungee Run, Face painting, Raffle and rugby themed games all prooved hugely popular.
With BBQ and Hog Roast being devoured at a great rate of knots and Colin rushed off his feet behind the bar, the crowds enjoyed some great displays of senior rugby, as Sevenoaks played its first competitive home rugby of the season and secured three wins from three. The day was an amazing success and raised £2,295 for the Charity. "Thank you Sevenoaks Rugby Club," said Jim Hopkns who organised the day with support from family, friends and fellow coaches. "And a huge thanks as well to everyone who attended. This really was a 'One Club' performance for a cause that's very close to our family."
The Day also marked the donation of money raised from Sevenoaks Rugby's Junior Tour to Barnstaple in May 2015. The Tour generated an incredible £6,000 for charity, which was donated evenly to Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, Kent Wooden Spoon and the Club's local schools outreach programme.
