There will be a mini one-day tournament of touch rugby, food from Global Kitchen Catering and Events, music by DJ Leroy Wilson, family fun and games and a fully stocked bar.

A spokesperson said the club, like the NHS, is a “venerated institution, staffed by hard-working people, sometimes struggling for cash, but always committed to doing good for the community.”
