The 100 World Legends team for this event have been assembled from around the UK and Europe.
Raising funds to aid research into Motor Neurone Disease for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, we will also be playing to help Aidan Campbell-Doherty, a sports science student who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia whilst studying at St Mary’s University in Twickenham. Despite receiving such devastating news, Aidan has thrown himself into many fundraising campaigns and his positivity and ambition has encouraged the Cancer Crusaders to support other young people and play for Aidan’s chosen charities – CLIC Sargent and CanTeen. Aidan is still studying in London, and continues to work with other young people giving them the support they need during times like this!
Play Rugby, Tackle Cancer is a grassroots effort to increase cancer awareness – so come along and join us where we promise to deliver a fantastic game full of rugby legends, live music, brilliant raffle and most importantly – money for some very worthy causes. We are sure to be in for a thriller!
The game was a great success. and although the 110 World Legends team was to strong for the English Crusaders. and as the actual rugby and winning was not the all important reason, We decided to mix the teams for the second half. with our forwards playing against our backs. .
The event raised over £8000 for the various charities with plans to make it bigger and better next year.
A Big thank you goes to our two main sponsors,.
ISS and The Clayton Hotel, Ciswick
