Southend RFC support Wooden Spoon

Southend RFC showed their support for our charity recently by holding a special event in aid of our Eastern Counties region.

Over 60 guests attended a pre-match lunch, which included a raffle and some fantastic auction prizes. Ian Clay, Club Chairman, spoke about Southend’s support for Wooden Spoon and gave viewpoints on the impending match against Old Elthamians RFC.

Eastern Counties regional chairman, Seamus Farrelly updated guests about the support we have provided to local projects including Shorefields School which is badged with the club.

Almost £1500 was raised on the day, and despite a close fought match Southend suffered defeat on the pitch losing 9-14 in the dying minutes.
