Loved the opening weekend of the Rugby Six Nations? (Probably not if you’re Scottish, French or Italian!) sorry! Long way to go yet! – Fancy a challenge which will end the day as a win regardless of results on the pitch?
The wonderful Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice have organised a fabulous event with the support of Moseley Rugby Club – ‘Rugby Ramble’ will raise munch needed funds that will help the local charity with the amazing work they do in our communities.
What is ‘Rugby Ramble’?
• A 10-mile sponsored walk from the Hospice in Selly Park to Moseley Rugby Club. (scenic route through parks and canals will)
• 10th February – Meet at 11:00am for registration and pre-walk refreshments – Walk start at 12:00pm – Arrive at the Rugby Club by 4:00pm.
• On arrival at Moseley Rugby Club, you will be rewarded with the essentials for any sporting occasion, a pie and a pint!
• You will be joined by members and players of the Club to watch the highly-anticipated England Vs Wales match, which will be shown on a number of big screens.
Lucy Watkins, events manager at Birmingham St Mary’s, said: “The England Vs Wales game is always one of the most eagerly anticipated Six Nations matches, so what better way to enjoy the game than surrounded by local players and other fans. Rugby Ramble is a fantastic event that the whole family can enjoy and although the 10-mile walk may be challenging, it really does make watching the game and tucking into a pie and pint that little bit more rewarding.”
Every day, Birmingham St Mary’s supports 350 individuals across Birmingham and Sandwell – whether that’s at the Hospice, in people’s own homes or in the local community. It costs £8million every year to run its critical services and over half of its funding is required from voluntary income.
Lucy added: “All of our services are free of charge to individuals, family members, carers and loved ones, so events like this are crucial in helping us to keep providing our expert care to everyone who needs it, wherever and whenever they need it.”
Rugby Ramble Tickets cost £15 per person, or £12 each when booked in groups of four or more. For more information or to sign up, please visit here.
England clinched a dramatic 21-16 victory over Wales in 2017 thanks to a late try from Elliot Daly, will it be as dramatic this year?
