Hi lads, 

On Saturday at Baildon RUFC were having a memorial match for my dad who was a rugby stalwart at our club,  and who died of blood cancer last October at 61.

Long story short,  if more men between the ages of 18-30 had signed up to the Anthony Nolan stem cell donation register he may have stood more of a chance.  We're holding the event to raise funds and get people signed up on the register. Rugby players are the perfect demographic. 

All details can be found here: https://www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk/news/17797560.respected-rugby-coach-player-martin-peel-remembered-charity-match/

It'd be amazing if you  can drop the link in your various WhatsApp groups or Facebook and get your teams to come and watch and sign up.  Entry is free,  donation suggested. 

Martin Peel Memorial Match
Saturday 3rd August
Mixed ability tag 1-3pm
Main event 3-5pm
Baildon RUFC
