Rugby Against Domestic Abuse

Mid Devon Police challenge the fire Service in ‘Rugby Against Domestic Abuse’ Charity Match

A charity rugby match will be played at Tiverton Rugby Club, Bolham Road, Tiverton on Monday 8 October. The ‘Rugby Against Domestic Abuse’ match will raise funds for the local domestic abuse service – Stop Abuse For Everyone.

The match organiser PCSO Dion Howells, from the Tiverton Neighbourhood Policing Team said, “This is the third of these annual matches that raises funds to support local victims of domestic abuse. In the last couple of years we have raised over £2000 and we hope to raise lots of money this year too. Both teams are fit and eager to go and the police team are keen to get their first win! This year we not only have a raffle but also a charity auction after the match so we hope many spectators will come and support this event and bid for the fantastic auction lots.”

The evening will commence at 6pm with a tag rugby event for local primary schools. Four schools are involved and the winning team will receive a cup. The main match will kick-off at 7pm with the cup being awarded to the winning school at half-time.

The Charity Auction will start at approximately 8.30pm with auction lots including a six month Zest Membership at Mid Devon Leisure Centres, tickets for Exeter Chiefs, a day at Yarak Birds of Prey, and a pamper session at The Stable Club Health Centre, Exeter.

Entry is £2 on the gate with under 12’s at 50 pence. Everyone is welcome.
