With exception of watching the First team, there is no entrance charges, all we ask is for donations to be made / raffle tickets to be bought to support this worthy charity.
Little more detail from the guys at 47 Regiment RA
They’re all ex-army from 47 regiment RA and each year meet up to play a game of rugby and support that year’s chosen charity. This year there are with us at Blaydon RFC and the charity they have chosen this year is for Help the Heroes.
The lads travel from all over to play the games, i.e. last year they all went across to Germany where the regiment was based to play a local German team.
They have an England shirt signed by Mark Wilson and a Newcastle Falcons top signed by the squad to raffle in the afternoon and on the night time have a disco with a raffle and have got about 50+ prizes, plus food….
It’s a open event, you don’t need a ticket, a donation at the door would be appreciated.
