Over the past couple of weeks the Rugby4Heroes team have been delivering money raised at the 2014 6th annual festival held at Old Leamingtonians RFC to the armed forces charities.
While this has been going on Rugby4Heroes and Old Leamingtonians RFC have been nominated for two 2014 Pride of Warwick Awards
The first cheque was presented to General Sir Mike Jackson on behalf of ABF Soldiers Charity for £3300 made at the Beating the Retreat Ceremony in London.
Last night (27th June 2014) we were delighted to present the second of our 2014 Festival donation cheques totalling £3,530 to 353, a local Armed Forces support charity founded in memory of Private Conrad Lewis, sadly lost in Afghanistan on 9th February 2011.
The total was made up of £3,080 from our Festival profits and an outstanding donation given by Katie Barnes, proprietor of Simply Nails Ltd. (http://www.simplynailsandbeauty.com) who raised £450 through her SimplyNails4Heroes stall at Rugby4Heroes!
Here you can see Conrad’s Mum and Dad Tony and Sandi receiving their donation cheques from Katie and the Chairman of Old Leamingtonians RFC, Charles A. Sabin Esq.
Royal British Legion and Forces Support donations up next.
Mr Mike Vallance; the festival organiser said "To be nominated for not just one but two Pride of Warwick Award is just the icing on the cake, after the hard work over the last six years it is still my honour to run this event every May". We are so proud to have been nominated for two 2014 Pride of Warwick District Awards!
