JRFC raise £9,000 for charity01/04/2014
Jersey's home match against Mosely on Saturday 29th March raised £9,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support (Jersey). Jersey Rugby Football Club (JRFC) had a strip commissioned for the game with Macmillan Jersey's logo on it and auctioned off four on behalf of the charity. The charity also benefitted from a portion of table sales in the hospitality tent, raffle proceeds and donations on the day.
Macmillan Jersey manned an awareness stand with information on its services and gave out information on prostate cancer as March is Prostate Cancer Awareness month.
Brian Frith, Chairman of Macmillan Jersey, said: "This event was a fantastic success for us. The JRFC and their supporters were so generous and we're very grateful for everyone's contributions to our charity. It was also a fantastic opportunity for us to raise awareness about prostate cancer and our services at Macmillan Jersey for anyone affected by any type of cancer here on the Island."
