Our thanks to Clive Robbins, Mini and Junior Chairman and the members of Marlborough RFC who have raised the sum of £125 from the auction of a signed shirt from our friends at Gloucester Rugby. The monies will be split between the club based in North Wiltshire along with Wooden Spoon Wiltshire and reflects the ongoing relationship between the two organisations.
