Tickets are still available for what is set to be a day of great entertainment, food, networking opportunities and guest celebrity appearance from Conor O’Shea – a former Irish rugby player and coach who is currently head coach for the Italian national team.
Other celebrity guests are David Flatman – a pundit and former rugby player for Bath and the England National Rugby Union team and David Duckham MBE – an England, Barbarians and British Lions legend, known in his day for his great pace, swerves and side steps.
The sporting lunch kicks off at 12noon with welcome drinks, before guests take their seats for a three-course meal and hear from the celebrity guest speakers. There will also be an opportunity to win the famous knife, fork and spoon, raffle and auction lots, donated from local businesses and celebrities.
Over the past six years the event has raised a combined total of more than £142,000. Funds will be raised at this year’s event to ensure the charity can continue to make a difference to children and adults living with disabilities in the county, and their families.
Ashley Weedon, fundraising manager at Diverse Abilities, said, “This event has always been an incredible success and we are looking forward to this year’s lunch. If you enjoy rugby, this is the perfect event for you.”
By booking one table at the Rugby Lunch, attendees will be providing the opportunity for one child to enjoy a sleepover at the charity’s children’s respite home, giving their parents a much-needed rest.
The event is sponsored by Dixon Stewart, Saxe Coburg and Barclays.
Tickets for the sporting lunch are £60 per ticket and £550 for a table. For more information about the lunch or to book tickets, visit www.diverseabilities.org.uk/rugby-lunch or call 01202 718266.
