Party on Pitch for two causes

Leamington Editorial 9th Jul, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

A ‘PARTY on the Pitch’ will be raising money for charity.

Southam Rugby Club will host their annual fund-raising event on Saturday July 16 to raise funds for former player Simon Adams’ Motor Neurone Disease Association and the Myton Hospices.

Simon’s aim after being diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease was to raise £1million for the charity and the Southam Rugby Club are continuing this in memory of Simon. To date Simon’s fund has raised some £540,000.

And the Myton Hospices was chosen this year to remember former captains Justin Newsome and Steve Buckle who both passed away from cancer.

The event will feature a football shoot-out, basketball, face painting and stalls selling food and drink will also feature from 3.30pm at the club’s Station Road ground.

Actor Daniel Brocklebank – who plays vicar Billy Mayhew in Coronation Street – will make a guest appearance and The Specials guitarist Roddy Radiation will be providing musical entertainment with band SKAFace.

Free parking at the club is available and free buses from the bowling green on Coventry Street will be provided from 2.30pm until midnight.

People can bring their own chairs and picnics or book a gazebo. Tickets cost £15 (children £7).
