From 2013 we have started to promote and support charitable causes with fundraising rugby matches and events. We host regular quiz nights for a fantastic cancer charity The Josh Carrick Foundation and in 2014 we staged the first of our events at Allianz Park (The Home of Saracens RFC) called The Finsbury Charity Tackle in aid of Cancer Research UK and MNDA (Motor Neurone), then in 2015 during the World Cup in England we played against former Rugby Internationals Federico Arambru (Argentina 2007 RWC) and Richard Tardits (USA 1999 RWC), in aid of the same charities.
We are now planning a major event for 2017 in aid of CRUK, MNDA and Mind as well as our clubs tour to Ireland to participate in a charity Rugby Tournament in Ballyhaunis Co. Mayo this August as part of their 40th anniversary celebrations in aid of The Irish Cancer Society IMNDA MNR (Both Motor Neurone) and Aware (Mental Health).
Also depending on the money we raise we will look at doing another Charity Tackle Weekend at Allianz Park for CRUK, The Josh Carrick Foundation, MNDA, J9 Foundation UK (Both Motor Neurone), Mind, in either mid/late July or early August of this year just before we go to Ireland.
