Old Leamingtonians RFC Rugby4Heroes have so far raised a total of over £78,000. All profits generated are donated to armed forces charities such as ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, The Royal British Legion, Help for Heroes, RAF Charitable Trust and 353, a charitable trust set up by the family of Private Conrad Lewis, Mentioned in Despatches for his actions prior to being killed in Afghanistan, February 2011.
The event organiser Mike Vallance said “The extra waste collections, and the provision of the mobile waste collection points, are hugely appreciated by us and the benefit charities.
The support we received was absolutely critical to our success and putting the event on a firm financial footing. So we would like to again thank you most sincerely for your support and for the key part Fortress played in its success.”
