Turning St Peter pink on charity match day09/08/2014
Players and supporters are being urged to 'think pink' when the second home league match of the forthcoming season is dedicated to the After Breast Cancer charity.
The match against Rotherham Titans on Saturday September 27th (KO is at 3pm) will be a themed affair, with the RFU sanctioning a one-off pink strip (pictured below) produced by kit sponsors Kukri which will be worn by Jersey's players as they take on last season's play-off semi-finalists.
Supporters are encouraged to get involved, and tables are available for lunch in a marquee on site. Female supporters are being offered the chance to win prizes for best hat, best dressed and highest heels, and there'll be a discounted admission rate of £10 (non-members) and £5 (members) for all ladies wearing pink to the game, which is sponsored by IFM Group.
After Breast Cancer Jersey Support Group (ABC) holds regular meetings and organises events aimed at promoting and raising awareness of breast cancer support in Jersey. All funds raised on the day will go to ABC, and every penny of this will stay on the Island for the group's valuable work.
There'll be plenty of action in the marquee throughout the day, with audience participation events during lunch and a post-match auction of some of the Jersey players' shirts.
"We want to create a really special atmosphere at St Peter on the day, encouraging as many people as possible to get involved in supporting the team against Rotherham, and at the same time raising awareness and funds for a really worthwhile local cause."
Tables in the marquee cost £700 for 10 people - to guarantee availability, bookings should be made as soon as possible to Verienne Belcher - firstname.lastname@example.org or 07781 166661
