#rugbyfair update

Hey all,

I thought it was time to give you all an update on the wonderfulness that is #rugbyfair.

The RU team have been working SUPER hard behind the scenes to sort out lots of exciting things for you to enjoy on the day!!!

First up, and probably the focus for a lot of you… FOOD!

I have confirmed a gorgeous cake maker to run our cake stall.  The FAB Joanne from Cakes & Makes, a local independent cake company will be supplying you with all your sweet treats from as little as 50p!!!

Now those of you who follow me will know I popped down to Grillstock in June…whilst I was there I got to taste burgers from The Beefy Boys (www.facebook.com/TheBeefyBoys) these boys not only competed there but the WON and will be off to Las Vegas to compete in a BBQ comp over there! Before that, they will be manning the grill at #rugbyfair.  I have to warn you…you MAY get addicted!!

Secondly…the part of this update that is most important for me…raising money!

We have been SO SO blessed with AMAZING support which is STILL GROWING.  As of 9pm on Thursday 10th July (whilst I am writing this blog) we have confirmed for the raffle:

  • Danny Care’s quins shirt signed by the whole team.
  • A signed Dragons shirt
  • An England 7s shirt signed by some of the team.
  • A signed England Women’s shirt
  • A BT Sport Ball signed by
  • From No1 Sports Bar in London (no1sportsbar.co.uk), a table for an event of your choice with a bar tab!!
  • From Premiership Rugby 2 pairs of WEEKEND tickets to World Club 7’s!!
  • Jim at Hereford Brewery (http://www.herefordbrewery.co.uk/) have given us 2 gift packs and a brewery tour.
  • Westons Cider are sending me a MYSTERY PRIZE!!!
  • Rhino Rugby have given us a BOX of mini rugby balls which will be used as prizes for games during the day!

For NOW that is our raffle BUT there will be more additions in the next few weeks which is VERY exciting.

In other news, my bid to get Nigel Owens to ref the game failed, he unfortunately is speaking in a place called Wales….We are looking at another celeb ref at the moment and will update you when we can.  I know that Forces Support have a few “special guests” up their sleeves so I am sure you will see some famous faces on the day!!

I still need volunteers to help me out for an hour or so on the day.  If you want to help, have a fab day out & meet some wonderful people please give me a shout.  There’s stuff in it for you I promise!!  Email me on gemma@rugbyunited.info with “Volunteer” in the subject box and I will get back to you ASAP with more info!  For those of you who have tweeted me your support thanks so much but can you also drop me an email? My head is overflowing with stuff, if you email me, I can’t miss it!!!

If you haven’t already done so please go buy your tickets now.  The more tickets we sell in advance the better I can make the day for you guys!!!


Thanks guys, see you in Hereford!!!
