Luke Simmonds, event organiser, said: “The Armed Forces community and charities have helped friends and I through some very tough times. The level of support these teams have offered have been nothing short of incredible. After years of service, I felt it’s time to give something back and try to raise some key funds and awareness for the chosen charities.

“The daytime event will be a rugby festival held at Girling Rugby club. There will be a children’s tournament, veterans’ game, female seniors’ game, mixed ability, touch rugby and final senior male charity select game, all surrounded by a family fun day full of activities, military village, food court and local business stalls.

“Following the fun-filled day will be an evening function at the Dragons Rugby club VIP suite with a three-course meal, guest speakers and live entertainment.

“I look forward to bringing my community into a fantastic day and night, helping raise money for some great charities. Everyone is encouraged to enjoy the activities we have for the families, then move to the formal evening event.”
