Sunday 2nd September saw the official launch of the Cancer Research Wales/Rhiwbina RFC annual raffle at a very busy Caedelyn Park.
The raffle is a joint venture between the two organisations to raise funds for Cancer Research in Wales and to support community rugby at all ages and levels in North Cardiff. All funds raised by Cancer Research Wales are spent in Wales, and are focussed on prevention, early diagnosis and better treatments.
Rhiwbina RFC has had an annual raffle for some years, but this is the first time they have combined with a charity in a unique joint venture. All prizes have been donated by local businesses, many of whom already support rugby development through sponsorship of kit and individual teams.
Local Councillors Jayne Cowan and Adrian Robson were on hand to launch the raffle at Caedelyn Park, along with Anna-Marie Jones, Community Fund-raiser for Cancer Research Wales, and Richard Price, Chairman of Rhiwbina Mini & Junior Section (pictured). It was a busy morning at Caedelyn as over 200 children were playing and training and development sessions were being delivered for coaches and team managers.
Please support the raffle and buy your tickets from Cancer Research Wales shops or from Rhiwbina RFC players, members, parents and supporters.
